Cuttlebug Spot - Inspired by a Book

This month at the Cuttlebug Spot we're getting inspired...and this week we're taking our inspiration from:

'Books'

I really didn't know where to start...but decided I'd take a look through all of my stamped images, to see if anything came to mind...and when I fsaw this adorable Penny Black stamp 'Feeding Frenzy', I knew I had it...'One Hundred & One Dalmations' by Dodie Smith...lol
In keeping with the 'spots' idea I used my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots', 'Spots & Dots' and 'Tiny Bubbles' folders on plain grey card. I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch on the edges of the strip across the centre, and added some spotty ribbon from Hoobbycraft.


For more inspiration, please check out the fabulous samples by my lovely Cuttlebug Spot DT buddies.
