Polkadots and Flowers

The challenge this month on Funky Hand is to produce something with POLKADOTS AND FLOWERS - not difficult with the great selection of papers available on the Papercraft Factory CDs.  The main difficulty was deciding which ones to use and I finally settled on these colourful flowers with matching polkadots from Happy Happy Birthday - the tiny flowers were punched from some of the textured plains in the same set and the cute cat image appears on Colour Me Happy.  Making this card has left me with surplus pieces of the papers and I'm aiming to try and use some of them up on another project before storing the final remnants in the bulging 'bits boxes'!!  The FH design team regularly post ideas for the challenge throughout the month so it is worth keeping an eye on them for more inspiration.


  1. Oh, this card is absolutely fab! I love that cat image as well. It's great to see you using different Papercraft Factory CDs together to make your card. A real inspiration. Thank you for joining in with this months Get Funky Challenge.
