Challenge #398 - OLC Spots

Hey LIMettes!

We're back with our 'love it or hate it' challenge, yes it is One Layer Card time and the theme is Spots so we think you will be able to find some fun things to do with spots on a one layer card.



Please remember that if you are going to 'splatter' to create spots, you need to do so sparingly so that there is still lots of clean 'white' space on the card.

**********************************************************

To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages.Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.

Today we are joined by our fantastic April winner joined by our fantastic April winner: Maria Rodriguez from the Swim, Bike Run blog and she has made this gorgeous card for us. Please take the time to visit her blog to leave her some LIM love.

Guest Designer: 
Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!
