Guylou's I See Dots Challenge

Back when I first started using digi stamps, my friend Tracy introduced me to Guylou's Inimitability.  G, as we like to Guylou, is amazingly talented (super sweet, too, might I add) and has awesome images!!  I really am a huge fan and supporter of her work.  So when G asked me to guest design for the upcoming challenge, I jumped out of my chair squealing with delight since her stamps and her group at the CDAC are so dear to my heart.  This really was an honor and I had so much fun playing with her Cat and Fish image, which you can purchase in her store here.

Ok, so lets get to the challenge at hand:  I See Dots Challenge!  This challenge is all about polka dots (love them, love them, love them!) - and you must use them on your project!!!  You really want to play along with this challenge because the winner will be awarded a digistamp of her choice from Guylou's Inimitability and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge and will get another GI digistamp to make a card or project along with the DT.  The challenge runs until March 31st, 10 p.m., so there is plenty of time to play along!!!  Hope you join us and most importantly, have fun with polka dots (I know I did, lol) !!

The Outlawz - Greeting Card Challenge March 14 GC031411


  1. What a cute card, Sara. I like how you used the ribbon to go under the scalloped circle but stay over the circular mat. Did that make any sense at all? LOL. I'm not quite awake yet.

  2. LOL, thanks Gina - I'm still sleeping, too, so I totally got it ;)

  3. Sara... we are so happy to have you as a GD at Guylou's Inimitability. Thank you for your kind words.
