Double D, Stripes And Dots

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 
Here is your Inspiration Tile for this Challenge:

Stripes And Dots

This card will also be entered into the following Challenges:

Crop Stop. #44 Anything Goes
Dies R Us Anything Fall

Here's my creation:    

I decided to create my own stripes using Designer Papers.  I used them on my background and on my Tag die cut and sentiment tag, Tutti Designs, Nesting Stitched Tags.  My little Trick Or Treater is from Papertrey Ink, Dress Up Dolls; Halloween, stamps and dies.  Images colored with Copic Markers.  She and her sentiment tag were backed with Fun Foam for dimension.  

Ribbons, Black Brad and Baker's Twine for accents.  

If this little sweetie knocked on my door she would get all of the treats!  

Speaking of sweeties, today our little Sweet Pea, Penelope Joy turns ONE!  
I can't believe how blessed we are to have such a true JOY in our lives.  It is beyond belief.
