I See Spots

Today it seems that my cards have a lot of dots and circles on them.

This card was made for the ABC Challenges "Double Embossed" Challenge...

July 22 - 28
Use both dry and heat  embossing on your card

It's difficult to tell from my photo, but the train image is embossed with black embossing powder.

Here's the inside of my card:

I also have a card for the MelonHeadz Friends Challenge...

July 22 - August 4
Theme: Lots of Circles

I actually used a sketch for this card. I found it on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog.

FYI: I'm also entering my card in the Sweet 'n Sassy Challenge.

Here's the inside of my card:


I created the inside sentiment on my computer as well as adding the "is for" to the Ww on the front of my card.

Wha fun cards Jeanette - love the train one - that is a stunning image! The W one is so colourful and just plain cute - I could do with some watermelon right now :-).

Wow Jeanette I just love that train card - its fabulous. That polka dot embossing folder is one of my very favorite to use.

I must say you did an awesome job with that circle sketch. I looked at that and went "oh my gosh what would I do with that" but you nailed it.
