House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-All "Round" Fun

Challenge #120 is all about circles and polka dots. This should be a fun challenge for you all!  I chose to make a round creation (well...sort of!) A fun apple basket using a silhouette cut --and of course I could not miss out on using polka dots!  I cut the apple a little diagonal on the paper to make it bigger and it seems to make everything look crooked...but really--it is just an optical illusion.

I added the image on with pop dots. I then added a hand cut banner sentiment using a Clear & Simple stamp set.

Our sponsors this challenge are :

House Mouse Designs-$25 gift card from their site
 Pizzazz Aplenty-$10 gift pack

I am going to give this little treat basket to my daughter to give as a retirement gift for one of her teacher friends.

Thanks for stopping by...hope you will join us in this fun challenge.
