Paperplaytime challenge

Hello doing another challenge here,
PaperPlaytime is doing another sentiment challenge. You had to use a sentiment and to use polka dots. I love using polka dots, its a neat theme to use.

i wanted to use a simple setup. I used a color purple theme to my card. My papers are from Paper Studio.  the flower is from making memories(was white) and i put polka dots with a purple Marvy marker to tie in the polka dots. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I am hooked on their stamps right now. I cut a banner from a white scrap and stamped the sentiment on it , then ran a purple marker round the edge of banner.
I loved how the card turned out. I think this one will go in the pile for Operation Write Home. What do you think?

HMFMC126 5x birthday

Hello all. I am trying to do another challenge. I love the House Mouse site and challenge blog. They come up with some good challenges.

I decided to try my hand at this one. It was to use a stamp with two or more animals( house mouse) for your project.

i wanted to use black cardstock for my card base. The orange pattern layer is by DCWV. The yellow and the striped is from Basic grey.
the orange layer is 4 x 5 1/4. i cut the others on a diagonal to layer over. I stamped the image with memento tuxedo black. colored with faber castell and distress marker. i layered the image with black cardstock and blue cardstock. I stamped birthday from Paper Smooches on the yellow triangle. i added the line of dot stickers from stampendous. on the striped layer.

What do you think? did i do good for this challenge?
