We're seeing spots over at Guylou's Inimitability!

Come play along and see some spots with us! The challenge this time around at Guylou's Inimitability is to make a card using dots. Polka dots. Fat dots. Dalmation spots. Ha...check me out, channeling Dr. Suess. What a talented man he was. My little rhyme pales drastically in comparison. Ok, again, I digress. You're used to that by now, I figure.

The DT worked with an adorable image called "cat and fish." I think it's pretty obvious that cat images always make me smile. I had a good time making my card. It's actually a gift card/cash holder. One of my neighbor's older children is going to take care of my cats for me for a bit, so I wanted to make her a little card to thank her for her time. I'm going to give her a wee bit of cash for it, too, which will definitely thrill her. She's coveting some jewelry from Avon, and some new markers for her art, and probably some clothes. Hey, she's a teenager, what do you expect?

Without further ado, here's my card:
Of course, I would hope that while she is taking care of them, it's not in the mindset of that kitty cat who wants to eat the fishies!!! LOL.

Like I said, it's a gift card holder. It opens where the scalloped border is. The bottom half of the card makes the pocket. I used rain dots as the little stones in the fishbowl, added glossy accents to the fish so they're shiny looking, colored the image with copics, and cut it out with my spellbinders. The fish paper is Cosmo Cricket.

You have until March 31st to make your own card for Guylou's Inimitability. Just make sure you don't forget to include the spots! Easy peasy, right? Well, then, what are you waiting for? Get to it!

great job girl! I love the use of the rain dots for the gravel. GMTA! I used seed beads. Love the huge border punch you used and all the sweet pink polka dot paper.

Oh my lord...what an adorable card Gina. I love how you made it such a wonderfully "girly" card...all that fabulous pink polka dot dp and ribbon...but that fish dp is the cat's meow! Fabulous job coloring that kitty and the fish in their bowl. And that little paw print embellishment is the perfect accent. And what a totally unique card...did you get the idea from a tutorial...and if so, are you willing to share where?
