You're Monsterrific!


It's time for another challenge over at My Craft Spot. This week, we're challenging you to use polka-dots on your project!


Last Sunday, Miss Kate Cuttables had an adorable monster file as their freebie of the day.  I was smitten and just could not refuse trying him out!  Instead of using the hearts that were part of the cut file, I opted to use some My Craft Spot metal dies - both the Hearts Border set and Small Alphabet set.  The circle (big polkadot!) under the hearts on the mat was cut using the Tiny Doilies metal die set.  I embossed my white mat with QuicKutz Polkadot embossing folder and layered that on some polkadot patterned paper from My Mind's Eye.  


I stamped my sentiment on a banner cut with My Craft Spot's Ribbon Banners - Wavy metal die set.  The sentiment itself is from Happy Haunting!!  Yes, a Halloween sentiment but it works just perfectly on my monster Valentine!  Between the words, I also added a little heart stamp from the Always & Forever stamp set.  I finished things off with some Caribbean sequins - the prettiest way to add polkadots to a project!!

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created this week.  Then, link up your own creation for a chance to win this week's prize!
