Graph'It Color Challenge - Vintage Polka Dots

Happy Black Friday Everyone! I hope you all here in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Are you going to do some Black Friday shopping? I know I wont go anywhere today - LOL. I never go out on Black Friday. I just don't like crowds and crazy shopping people. I'm planning on doing all my Christmas decoration inside the house today and get me my poinsettias tomorrow for my outside decorations.

Today a new Graph' It Color Challenge starts and the theme this week is Vintage and Polka Dots. Show us your vintage creations incorporating polka dots. And this is what I came up with:

This cute guy is called Snowy and can be found on the Polkadoodles 'A Home For Christmas' CD. The list of markers I've used is posted beneath the next photo. Sentiment and snowflake die is from Whimsy. The little wooden snowflakes are from Prima's Junkyard Findings collection. Flowers are from WOC and Prima. The Weathered Clock die is from Sizzix by Tim Holtz. Other embellies I used are lace tape, metal embellishments, German glass glitter, pearls, Gesso, Snow Tex and Shabby White Embossing Enamel.

Markers used:
Red: 5280, 3180, 5240, 5220
Green: 8290, 8280, 8260, 8220
Snow: 9103, 9101, 9100
Beige: 3210, 4110
Orange: 2130, 2110, 2105
Cheeks: 4145
