Seeing spots

Wow! It was so fantastic to see all the new faces joining in this past week's Lil Lolita Boutique challenge and I'm hoping we can get even more this week! It's another fun and easy one, all you have to do is include polka dots somewhere on your card along with your Lil Lolita image... told ya it was easy. ;)
And I know you're probably getting tired of all these blown up Lolitas I've been doing lately but you'll just have to bear with me a little while longer as I am having way too much fun coloring them up this way, LOL! This time I took 50's Lilith, blew her up, cropped her and mirror flipped her as well. To switch things up a bit I used the entire 'panel' Lilith was printed on as the bottom layer of the design. Then I added bits of paper and my embellies all on top of it.

Ok, now it's time for you to print out or stamp up your Lil Lolita and play along, Kellie always has a great prize from the Tickled Pink store up for grabs that you won't want to miss out on. :)
And switching gears a bit, I've got an update on my 1000 sheets of paper candy... never in a million years could I have imagined the huge response that it has already seen! Seriously, I thought it would go the whole month picking up a comment here and there and maybe, just maybe, getting close to about 300 comments. Ummm, yea... to say I underestimated things is an understatement. Soooooo... because we have surpassed 500 comments I am adding an additional prize of 200 sheets of 6x6 pattern papers and a Sweet November Oleander stamp (shhhhhhh... she's not due to be released for a few more weeks)! ;)
No need to start posting here for a chance to win, just continue on the original post if you haven't entered yet. And thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your continued support... it means the world to me! :)

Very nice card! Not so common to have the image on the base layer... As for your candy, it's not surprising at all... After all, it's a dream-like quantity of paper you're giving away!

Very, very pretty card!! And, wow, yes, soooo many comments, it's amazing! I had a candy myself two weeks ago, my first one and I was totally amazed that I got from 50 followers to 142!!! Ha ha!
