CardzTV Challenge # 1 ~ Dots & Stripes

Hi my crafting friends. I'm so excited to be joining Mary and other very talented ladies for another term as a team member of CardzTV  Cards Designers :-)

For our first challenge of this new term, we would like you to create a card using Dots and Stripes.  How fun is that?  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  Once you completed your card, join us by linking it to CardzTV Challenge #1.  Mary has a set of her wonderful stamps to give away to one lucky participant! You have until noon EST, Thursday, October 9, 2014, to post your name and a link to your card at CardzTV.
Here is what I came up with for my card using Dots and Stripes.
I made a Halloween card for my little granddaughter. I think that this little teddy bear witch is just too darn cute. I used the Teddy Bear Parade cricut cartridge to cut it out. The background mat is a die from Marianne Designs called Anja's square.

As you can see, I made a twisted easel card. I love this type of fold and don't use it often enough :-)
For the inside, I used Anja's square again to cut the mat which I placed on top of the Stripes paper.  Both of these DP's came from a paper pad by Paper Studio called All Seasons. The cardstocks are also from the Paper Studio.  I made a little "stand" for my easel card by adding pop dots to the sentiment, which is a stamp from the CardzTV stamp set called Happy Days. I added a little bat and  a little spider for decoration.  After all, what would Halloween be without bats and spiders? :-)
Now, let me show you this great stamp set from CardzTV.  As you can see there are loads of greetings for every occasion. This is one of my "go to" sets.  You can purchase this stamp set and look at all the other wonderful sets here.
I want to take a minute and tell you about a new blog in bloggie land.
  It is the CardzTV Gallery Blog.
