DT challenge for CBGM-Stripes or spots

Hi everyone and welcome to this month's challenge at Creations by Gill McCall. The challenge this month is to use Stripes and or Spots either as a feature or as backing paper. Here is what I came up with and I hope you like it:)
 The BP is from my stash and I punched around the page with an Anna Griffin punch. The topper is a Darice EF on c'oredinations paper, sanded and distressed with Victorian Velvet DI. I used a ribbon punch between the candles and slotted polka dot ribbon through and attached to the card with silicone glue. I added material brads to the corners and  the sentiment is from my xyron digital runner.

Check out the other DT cards on Gill's blog and remember that to be included in the challenge you need to be a follower of Gill's blog and mention the challenge in your posting.
Good luck this month;)

Such fabulous colours, Val. I love how you threaded your ribbon between your beautifully embossed and distressed candles. I love your coordinating fabric brads :)
I have one of those Xyron runners, but never think to use it. The ink will probably have dried up by now.
Enjoy your bank holiday weekend, and lots of lovely cuddles with Charlie xx
