Love To Create Challenge - Guest Designer

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend!  Our weather was a mixed bag, but nothing that interfered with any plans so it worked out fine.  I'm so excited about my post this morning!  I was invited to be Guest Designer for the Love To Create Challenge this week!  I am really honored to have been asked!  The theme for Challenge #25 is "spots 'n dots" and the sponsors are Papelito's Stamps and Meljen's Designs.  I was generously provided with a few Meljen's digis to choose from to create my card.  All of Melissa's digis are so cute, it was hard to pick!

Here is  my "spots 'n dots" card:

I used SU Chocolate Chip and Groovy Guava cardstock and layered with "spotty and dotty" patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Little Miss 6x6 pad.  My adorable image is Little Girl Bear Hugs from Meljen's Designs.  I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Stickles here and there for some sparkle.

Here is a close-up of the cute image:

The sweet sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A triple-loop satin bow and a Webster's Pages Whimsy Heart finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Love To Create Challenge blog and check out the wonderful creations from the design team!  I'm sure they would love it if you played along!

Have a great day and see you soon!
