On Cute Card Thursday the challenge is to put dots or spots on your card. I have had this dotty/spotty background for soooo long, it is part of a set. I have never really utilised it and am disappointed with it on this card because eventhough it is small, you could see the join as I had to use the stamp twice. I think I am going to HAVE to get the SU really big stamp which would have easily covered this in one go. So, I put the head in the middle and am quite pleased with how it turned out. Not sure you should have colour as it is a silhouette. Used a silver peel off and coloured it with a black pen.

I think the colour really glams it up though. I like the dotted stamp..I feel your pain over its size, but hey, it is a fab stamp!


Hi Linby
This is such a lovely card - really like the silhouette image, and the splash of pink is the perfect finishing touch. Beautiful!
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

I love it! ;) I can't see the join either. For me black and white always looks great with pink or red. Though I can't see the join, if you're bothered by it, youcould always do random spotting maybe one main stamping and then a few round the edges.
