Well, I made a set of cards for this challenge as I got carried away with Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka Mon Amie pattern paper. So this post has lots of photos.

I have used the Let's Polka Mon Amie pattern paper on all the cards which I die cut using Stitched Rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. I also used the leftover pattern paper to stamp the banner and sentiment. I hand cut them all the banners. The focal point image the Kangaroo is from Critters Down Under stamp set. I stamped and copic coloured them all and hand cut them all out. To make the image stand out, I adhered them on a stitched rectangle vellum panel with the sentiment banner below the focal image. Finally embellished with sequins from Little Things by Lucy. Here are the closeups.
