Serendipity Stamps Challenge #18

Hi there!

It is time once again for a new challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is to use either polka dots or gingham on your project.

I am in fall mode, my friends, and I could resist using this sweet Autumn Chair image on my card. I envision this old chippy chair on the porch of our new home. :)

I stamped the image and used Copic markers to color it in. I stitched around the outside edge and matted it with some dark brown cardstock.

I brought the polka dots into play by using different dotted patterned paper. I picked colors that were all complimentary to my colored image, and the different sized dots keep it interesting. I die cut the pieces and adhered them in a quilty pattern. A bit of grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.

Won't you join us? All you need to do is use at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your project, along with polka dots or gingham, and link it up over on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog

Here is this week's fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:
