Hey thanks everybody!  

Actually the painters tape was pretty easy to work with.  I did not actually draw out the design ahead of time, I just started cutting and sticking it on there.  I don't think much skill was really involved, just cutting some squiggly lines and some leaf shapes.  

I think doing a standard polka dot one would be super cute.  Maybe using different size circles.
