Lots of Dots for C & C Blog Hop!

I'm so excited!  This is my first customer blog hop and I'm so thrilled to be a part of the Claudia and Co. customer blog hop!! My card features Puddle Jumper Emma by Lori Boyd.  Isn't she a cutie?!!
Love her!  Well, I couldn't resist using her polka dotted dress as as the theme for my card so I'm calling it Lots of Dots!  The background paper is embossed with cuttlebug folder Spots and Dots.  The circles were die cut out of sei "Such a Girl Rosie Rings" d.p. with my Nestabilities.  The ribbon is Offray "Dot to Dot".  Emma was colored with Copic markers and the bow in her hair was enhanced with ribbon.  Buttons on the circles added some emphasis to the dot theme.  Do you think I'm just a little too dotty???

Dueling Darlings February Challenge: LOVE!

I'm so excited to post for the first time my Dueling Darling challenge card!  Well, it's the 15th of February and the day the Dueling Darling Divas challenge the Dueling Darling Dazzlers.  This month our hostesses Jamie for the Divas and April for the Dazzlers have chosen "Love" as their theme.  For the Divas Jamie sent us this awesome kit  which included this darling Animal Hearts image of ducks paddling through water carrying love balloons.  Also included in the kit was some gorgeous paper, beautiful heart and leaf die cuts, a silver medal heart, heart brads, 3 ribbons, and adhesive pearls.  Jamie also reminded us that February is black history month and encouraged us to be inspired by this quote from Martin Luther King Jr.: "I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear."  Awesome!!
Here is my challenge card:

I used the MOJO Monday sketch 178 as the layout for my card.  Also used SU Cherry Cobbler, Bazzill silver and G.P. white cardstock.  My image was colored with Copic markers and the accessories I used were Spellbinders Nestabilities dies, Martha Stewart punch and a corner rounder.  All the other elements were from the kit.
