Spot Check

     I see spots!  Do you?  LOL  I sure hope so cause that's our wonderful Debbie's challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil.  I've chosen to use "Blueberry Girl" on my card.  Blueberries are kind of dots aren't they.  LOL  Well, even if you don't want to count the blueberries, there are plenty of other dots on this card on the DP and just in case that wasn't enough, I've added a ton of little ones to her shirt.  Here's a close up.
     I think I've got the challenge covered, don't you?  :-)  You can find "Blueberry Girl" plus a LOT more amazing Mo images in the store so pop over and browse.  When you're done you can come back to the DP2 challenge blog and add your entry for this week's challenge.  Mo's giving away a $5.00 gift voucher for every twenty-five entries.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
