Simon Says Stamp and Show-Tape Challenge

I'm going to a birthday party today for my Great Aunt Lillie who is 90 years old.  I made her this card, which I'm entering in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Tape Challenge.  All of the stamps are from Stamping Scrapping.  I did some selective inking on the cupcake stamp since it's part of a Ladybug set and the stamp has ladybugs on the cupcake.  Since I didn't want any bugs on my food for this card (just kidding, it's a cute set) I carefully inked the stamp and avoided the ladybugs.  I used washi tape on both corners of the card.

Lots of Dots

The September Challenge over at the Crafter's Companion blog is to use dots or stripes.  I just happened to have run a swap on my Yahoo group (Inkyfunstampers) to use dots or circles and I'd signed up for the swap, but had not yet completed my card.  Well, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and use a Crafter's Companion stamp and enter the challenge.
I used the Compass stamp from the Stamp It Australia collection.  I like the saying on here, "If you don't know where you're going you will probably end up somewhere else."  My background was created with spray inks and a stencil.  There are some dots there, but I also punched circles out of polka dot patterned paper and added them to my card as well.  I finished the card off with a ribbon and used pop dots to adhere my focal point.
