Merry Monday Challenge #128: Polka dots and/or Stripes

This week's Merry Monday Challenge was to use polka dots or stripes.  As soon as I read that, I immediately began rummaging through all of my Christmas paper pads.  When I discovered this cute combination of polka dot and stripe print, I knew it would be perfect for my card.  I decided to begin with a card base cut from kraft cardstock.  I then cut a slightly smaller rectangle from my patterned paper for the background.  I thought that this blue snowflake print from the same paper pack would coordinate nicely, so I cut a small tag from it.  I cut a small strip from the dotted stripe paper and taped it to the bottom of the tag.  Next, I stamped the word "joy" and added two snowflake stickers.  To help the tag stand out more, I cut a larger tag from kraft and tied the two tags together with a satin ribbon.  I taped the tag to the front of my card and "Ta-da!," my card was finished.

Supplies:  Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
                 Lost & Found Christmas paper from My Mind's Eye
                 PTI stamp from Filled with Joy
                 PTI ink pad in ripe avocado
                 Snowflake stickers by Paper Studio
                 Burgundy satin ribbon
