Cupcake Craftroom - July Challenge

Hey Everyone! Its the 1st of July already and its time for a new challenge at Cupcake Craftroom!

The mission if you chose to accept it is to use Polka Dots!! Yay! My Fav thing at the mo if you couldn't tell with my recent blog posts!  All you have to do is to have some form of polka dots on your creation it could be your DP's, Ribbon, Embellies etc its up to you!

There will be one winner personally chosen as usual for this month's challenge who will receive the 'Fresh Polkas' brand new paper collection

Now onto my creation for this month's challenge, I've gone for a criss cross card which i've never made before but i think its turned out quite well, you can either put a note in like i've done or tweek the sizes to make it smaller for a gift card holder i think it looks rather cool unfornatley it dosen't stand like a normal card but hey it looks pretty esp with Olive the Otter from PMS she is sooo sweet!


Kraft Cardstock
Fresh Polka Dots Digi Papers (I've used Lemon, Lime, Satsuma and Warm Pink) and Notepad paper from Pollyanna Digi Paper Set Cupcake Cards and Crafts
