Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Spots & Stripes

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT post

********************************
 
It's my turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week, and the theme I have chosen is:

'Spots & Stripes'

I picked some bright and sparkly spotty & stripey papers from my 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye. The adorable bear is 'Little Star' by Lili of the Valley...I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some Glamour Dust to his star. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs Creatables and Cuttlebug dies...then coated with more Glamour Dust...and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the edge along the strip across the middle.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
