Spots and Dots at Scrapyland

Our challenge at Scrapyland starts today and our theme is Spots and Dots!  Be sure and use one of the die brands found in the Scrapyland store and enter for a chance to win a wonderful prize from Scrapyland!

The "thanks" die I'm using today was a gift from a very sweet blogging friend and can be found in the Scrapland store here.  I used some card stock (which was also a gift!) and patterned papers that aren't my usual choices but thought I'd shake things up a bit and try them.  The photo isn't the best in the west because of a cloudy day and low light - but it is what it is.  Much nicer in real like.  The "thanks" was die cut on white card stock and then the sentiment heat embossed in white on vellum.  A bit of stitching, twine, and sequins were added.


Thanks for stopping by..........and head on over to Scrapyland Challenges to see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT and enter for your chance to win.

You've done it uh-gin! Love the graphic design with the spots & dots, and the wonderful airy look of the embossing on that vellum. Loved the subdued colors sparked up with the soft pink. Of course you know how addicted I am to these die sentiments, and it worked beautifully on this pretty card. WTG. TFS & Hugs too.
