Spots and/or Stripes at Cardz 4 Guyz

Time for our newest challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this time we would like to see SPOTS and/or STRIPES on your card.

I've chosen to use both and in fact even some of the stripes on my stripey paper are made up of spots! The two papers are left over from a very old Hot Off The Press Christmas kit, but I think they are well suited to any time of the year. The stamp is a Little Claire one and I have used Promarkers to colour it, picking "doggy" colours that go well with the browns and beiges in the paper.  And to keep to the spotty, stripey theme, there's even a spotty dog on there! All the layering pieces came from my snippets box, I was very pleased to find such good matches.

Why not pop over to Cardz 4 Guyz and show us your spotty and stripey creations?

Meanwhile I'll share mine with several challenges:

Ruby's Rainbow - Animal Magic
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - January
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes (and ooh, look who made top 3 last time!)
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky - Buttons, Bows or both (I hope the one button is enough - although one of the doggies is wearing a bow!)
and I'm tiptoeing in to the Snippets Playground to share my card and administer tea and paracetamol to all those hooch-induced hangovers!
