Stripes and Polka Dots....Oh My!

It’s here at last….our new mattress arrived today! I’m so excited, I can’t wait to get a good night’s sleep tonight….and see if this headache I’ve had has been caused by my bed. If not it’s back to the dr.’s for tests on the deteriorating disc in my neck. But at least I’ll have a nice comfy bed to come home to *smiling*!

But I digress, onto the real reason you’re here. There is still time to get in on Digistamp4Joy’s current challenge, which is Polka Dots and Stripes! Yup, we wanna see both of them.  The card that I made is a really special one as it was made for my dd Kaitlynn’s (Kat) 20th Birthday. And what better image to use than Sophist-Kat? It uses her nick name and it gives you the idea of what kind of card I wanted to do.
I wanted to do something a little more "grown up" seeing as how it was her 20th Birthay so I chose a Tri-Shutter card...well actually she chose it. I told her I had to make a DT card and asked what her favorite fold that I've done is. She likes the Tri-Shutter card....she also thought that red went well with the Aqua paper I had already chosen...I totally agree with her *smiling*.

To join in on the fun, just head over to the Digistamps4Joy Challenge Blog for all the details and the list of prizes. While you’re there check out the fab creations that my teammates have come up with.
