Lawnscaping polka dot challenge

Hi There!

I've been wanting to play along with a Lawnscaping challenge for quite a while but just have not had the time until now. As soon as I saw that the challenge was polka dots I knew I wanted to create a dotty skunk! I did this by stamping the skunk in black first, masking off the white bits and stamping over again with a dotty background stamp, he looks so cute! especially with glossy accents on the nose and eyes, the camera picked up the shine so well!
I'm not usually able to think out of the box when using my stamps so I am really proud that I used the log stamp from the same set to create a border round my card, next time I think I'll make sure I stamp in either all horizontally or all vertically though so the grain all goes in the same direction.

Thanks for looking today!
