Polka Dot Fun

Crazy for Challenges this week used Polka Dots and also happened to be sponsored by Innovative Stamp Creations which I really like so I decided to play along :) Plus the stamps I have from there are mostly floral so I could think about something other than the yukky weather we are having right now!

 Crazy For Challenges

I stamped the polka dots and the flowers from the Flowers & Elements FAE3-06 Stamp Set with Memento Ladybug Ink.  I then spritzed the flowers with Shimmerz Baby’s Breath before cutting them out.

I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots to carry the polka dot theme over to the Black Magic Spell Caster Paper.

You can see here how I doubled up the flower to give the petals some more depth too.  This is a great technique I find myself turning to a lot lately.

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Hope you enjoy and participate too if you can.

hugs,

Signature

Great card- sure is nice to think of spring- we are getting snow here in the Chicago area today! (It is really pretty though!)
