Good morning!  This is my first post as a new design team member for Paper Crafting Journey.  We are still running our six week long challenge Anything Goes sponsored by Mayzy Art.  This challenge will go until September 12.  But, starting today PCJ is running another challenge with Papelitos Challenge for 2 weeks.  This challenge is for a Birthday or Celebration.  Here is my card using Heather.  You can check out what my other team members have designed here.

Heather is a sweet little digi image from Papelitos.  She is so cute.  She is all dressed up for the party.  I used the dots coloring technique for her dress.  I thought it turned out pretty good.  Here is a close up of the dress:

Cardstock - CS is SU and DP is My Mind's Eye
Stamps - Heather from Papesitoes and sentiment is from SU So Happy for You set stamped in Tempting Turquiose
Die Cuts - Spellbinder Circle and Big Scalloped Circle; Tim Holtz for Sizzix Mini Paper Rozettes Strip die; MFT Fishtail Flag Stax
Ribbon - SU
Rozette center from my stash


I plan to enter this card in this challenge:

Crafty Ribbons Challenge - #25 - Spots and Dots

The Cutie Pie Challenge - #24 - Spots and Stripes

Polka Doodles Challenge - Week 32 - Celebration

The Poodles Parlour Challenge - Die Cuts
