Toot toot!

It's official: I'm part of the One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT) Design Team! Toot toot! (That's me tooting my own horn!) Many thanks to Choccy & Stitchy & everyone at OSAAT [the challenge blog for StitchyBear Digital Stamps]. I'm already having great time!

I made this card as a sort of personal celebration (you know how I love those!); I used a digi stamp from Ike's Art, one of the fantastic artists whose work is available at the StitchyBear store.

For further inspiration, I used the following challenges:
Colour Create #88: Pink & Green
The Ribbon Reel Challenge #19: Pink Polka Dots (oops, missed the deadline!)

Some time ago I created this polka-dot digi paper template in InDesign, so I can just go in and change the color scheme and resize it. I printed it on linen cardstock, so it's nice and sturdy! The center ribbon is actually 3 pieces of ribbon. I made the furls on the outer white silk ribbons by pulling on a thread, and then adhering & styling it with double-sided tape.

Polkadots & geraniums always remind me of Spring in Spain, so I used a Spanish sentiment stamp from one of my Dilo en EspaƱol sets.

Have a great day everyone, and Happy New Year!
