I must first give a little love to Waddles at Your Next Stamp! He is just so darned cute!!!
I would personally love to receive any design that featured Waddles! He just makes me smile!
And, I absolutely adore his igloo cake!
I had a longer journey to get to this particular card. I knew I wanted to use Waddles. Then I found the most recent sketch challenge at The Challenge. The theme this week is polka dots. I perused my papers until I found this fun pattern. It just so happened to include the colors for the color challenge at YNS. I am not sure I am entirely in love with my color choices for the banner, but I think he came out cute none-the-less.
I had to scour the internet for a sketch that I wanted to follow with this particular stamp. I found one at Deconstructing Jen. The circles went perfectly with the way the banner fell.
It tickles me that I am able to enter so many challenges this week!
