Pretty in a pink ribbon

     Polka dots!  That's what we want to see this week at Papercraft Star.  I've used another great image from Saturated Canary called "Boobie Love".  Leave it to Krista. LOL  This was a freebie a few weeks ago and since my friend Jennifer has been on my mind lately, I decided to use this image for a card.  Jen's really having a rough go of it with her treatment so please continue to keep her in your prayers.
     This week our fearless leader Jan has got a great vintage style card to showcase some dig image sheets from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay, so make sure you pop over to the PCS blog and check her card, and the other DT member projects out.
     Hope to see you in the entries!  You have until 6:00 a.m. EST Monday to get linked up.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Going Grey with Scrap Creations--it's a girl thing
Ribbon Carousel--anything goes plus a spooled item
The Crazy Challenge--girly
Crafty Emma--button it
A Gem of a Challenge--sketch
Our Craft Lounge--buttons
Totally Papercrafts--buttons
Oozak Challenge--anything goes

     Happy Wednesday!

Another beautiful card Tracey...Jennifer will love it! She is one amazing lady & an inspiration to all in this fight she is in. Not sure how she keeps her spirits so high!

You did an incredible amount of stitching on here, wow. Such a lovely card, with (of course) the best coloring ANYWHERE !!! You didn't say how you did the background on the image, but I am guessing you did it in reverse ?? Wonderful idea, and it suits this gal perfectly !!!
