CIC205 - Kenny K

Polka Dots - is there anyone who doesn't like them?  Some of my favorite dresses had polka dot fabric.  There's just something cheery about them.  You cannot wear a polka dot outfit and feel crummy, they just lift your spirits.  I bet you're smiling looking at those cupcakes and hopefully you're getting an idea for a card.  Once you're ready you can join us at Cupcake Inspirations for our challenge #205.  We've got Kenny K for our sponsor - you know you want to play for a chance to win a Kenny K image.   Pull out your polka dot papers and get cracking, I mean crafting.   Don't forget to link you card up.  The sweeties can't wait to see what you create.  You can see what they created by stopping off at the CIC blog

Because of the dress I choose to use "Happy Hour" from the "Retro" collection for my card.  Most times I would make the dress red with white polka dots but for this card the colors were taken from the inspiration photo.  Now that I've seen it in this color choice I'm likely to use it again, maybe even try some other different color combos because there a lot of people I know who will relate to this gal.  I may need to change the drink color to pink for my Cosmo drinking buddies.  Now if only she were holding a Corona or red wine and of course there's diet Pepsi... 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Kenny K "Happy Hour" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Sour Apple" card stock; October Afternoon "Midway" dp; Recollections Printed Scrapbook Papers Pack
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Oval Stax" die-namics; baker's twine; glass charm; Twinkle Goodbumps; stickles
