Greetings DYSU friends!  Today marks another challenge at the DYSU challenge blog!  The challenge is to use Polka Dots.  My sweet swim girl image today is from Stamp and Create.  I printed my image three times.  Once onto Copic Xpress paper, again onto blue cardstock and again onto red/blue polka dotted designer paper.  I first colored my image with my Copics and then paper pieced her towel and bathing suit.
I don't know about you but I totally have Olympic fever this week so this was THE perfect image!  I added lots of fun polka dotted elements using Washi tape and patterned paper.
 I added a cluster with stitched ribbon, baker's twine and a pretty button.
 I used some tiny brads to anchor my corners and lastly my VERY favorite resin flowers that I love love to give my creation that little something extra.  I used my MFT mini tabs - specifically the bracket tab to house my sentiment which is from Some Odd Girl.

I hope you come play along with our polka dots challenge right here at the DYSU Challenge Blog!

Crafty Hugs!
