September 2020 Card Challenge - Winner!

Post by wimom » Wed Sep 02, 2020 2:31 pm

And the winner is No. 28, Shoorn/Susan! Off to send your $5 GC. Thanks to everyone who joined in the dotty challenge! 
--------------------
The challenge this month is to use dots -- LOTS of dots! Polka dot paper will work well for this, but your also could go for a confetti look or use enamel dots, for example. But just a sprinkling of dots will not do -- you must use LOTS of dots! And you have a sketch option, too.

Your options:
1. Make a card that used lots of dots.
2. Use the sketch below to make any type of card, no dots required. Remember, the sketch is just a starting point -- take whatever elements inspire you and make it your own!
3. For a bonus, use the sketch below to make a card that uses lots of dots.

My sample:

And the sketch:

The rules:
-- You may submit only ONE card this month. 
-- If you use the sketch, please tell what part(s) of the sketch you incorporated.
-- Open only to new, paper cards (no digi). 
-- Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. September 30.
-- You may combine with one other monthly challenge if that challenge allows, plus the summer motivational challenge.

A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator. Please ask if you have any questions.

Your card is so pretty. I think I have lots of polka dot paper that I rarely use.

thank you for this challenge, it actually got me to create something for the first time in a while. I pulled out this G45 collection which has loads of dots, even the floral has dots. I also used the sketch, almost exactly but I changed the dimensions.

combed with this or that.

Great sketch, and so love that card!  The color combo is awesome, and you sure did get a lot of dots on it!!!  Super fun!

Dug way back into my older paper stash for this graphic 45 pp.  says 2007 on the paper strip.  Difficult to see but the border strip is an OLD Martha Stewart border punch from the same era!  I was going for a fall theme and was done with the card before I realized that those are cherries not apples.   But I like the card.   And I did use the sketch for the bonus as well.
