Kaboodle Challenge - found this on Helens blog...

The challenge this week was to creare a card with both spots and stripes - this for me was really difficult as I would normally go for one or the other and not both together and at first I was thinking that I needed the have a large panel of both.
I decided to keep the design of the card simple, using a backing panel of stripey paper from my stash and a smaller square panel of spotty paper in a colour picked up from the stripey paper also from my stampin up! stash.
The immage is a gorguss girl - little miss attitude again and I have coloured her with my promarkers. I have not mounted the image as I did not want to take away from the contrasting backing papers. I have stamped the sentiment in the same colour as the DSP and have used a hero arts stamp. If you look at the stripet DSP where I have stamped the image I have trimmed a piece off - off set this and stuck the sentiment lower than the rest of the paper, just to make it stand out more.

I hope you like the card and thanks for looking - your comments are appreciated - Debbi x x x
