Cards In Envy Challenge #2

Woo Hoo! We made it through the first challenge, with lots of amazing entries following the sketch Denise posted.  This is my first design team, so every new experience has tons of excitement for me.  Our challenge this fortnight is Dots and Stripes, and here is what I came up with.
And now here comes the difficult honest part... I scraplifted a little bit, my daughter came up with the concept, handed me the paper etc. I made another card that I will show you in a minute, but I really loved this one too much to replace it.  The polka dot and Zebra striped paper were both from my stash, so far back that I don't have a foggy clue where from.  I absolutely LOVE my Dr. Seuss quote stamp, I got it from Punkin' Patch Stamps, I was sad to hear that they aren't creating their stamps anymore, but I think I might just go over there and take whatever they have left online. I had the lime green ribbon left over from a clearance sale when summer ended last year.  When you are done here the Cards In Envy blog has the links to see all of the other DT projects!
