Hey Blogger Friends!!

Welcome to a new week of fun.  Last week we had a lot of great entries.  We bet this week we will have a lot of great creations too because we have an all time favorite theme... POLKA DOTS!! They are use in fashion, decorating, publishing... just look around and you will find a world of inspiration.
We can't wait to see what you come up with so let's get started.

For this week we have two fabulous sponsors.

Broken Box Stock
* A "Toodle Club Membership" and a free Toodle Birthday Calendar.  Total prize package is a $29 value.

Stamp & Create
* $25 Gift Certificate

For my card I used polka dots in different ways.  I used design paper, stamping and die cutting.  I added some circles to a digital butterfly and cut it with my digital cutter two times.  One with the polka dots and one in a contract color without the polka.  Then I stamped some polka dots to the white piece.
Here is a close up of my butterfly:

Sorry about the picture, the light here today it's not very good and these are the best images I could get.

I am very proud that my flower was cut in canvas using my digital cutter.  Yes!!  Finally I am cutting my digital files in fabric!!!  It took me a while to figure out how but I got there finally  ;)  
I added some color to the canvas with my Copics.

Here is a full view of my card:

Hope you get motivated to stack up with us this week!!!
