Creative Card Crew #47 - Going Dotty!

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Card Crew Challenge. Wow!! ... what an amazing number and quality of entries for last week's "celebration" challenge - it was brilliant that so many of you could join us. Don't forget to check back later to see who has won my three LotV stamps blog candy :-), and who has won the prizes on the main challenge blog.

This week we have another great challenge - we'd like to see you all

going dotty!
and we have another fab prize sponsored by

which is this adorable House Mouse stamp.

The rest of the DT has been really going dotty so I hope you'll call by their blogs to check out their creations. Here's mine .... a few firsts for me as it is my first paper-pieced card and my first use of the fab Bazzill jewel templates to create my pearly flourishes :-)

I used the fab sketch from this week's Simon Says Challenge

and would also like to enter the card for the following challenges:

ABC - P is for Paper-Piecing
One Stop Craft Challenge #71 - Spots & Dots
