Ready to see what I made????
For my first card I thought I'd go with a traditional way of using polka dots and brought out my beloved and coveted polka dot background stamp...yeah, like y'all thought I wouldn't right, hehehehe! ;) Poor stamp is about worn down to a nub at this point, lol! I paired it up with the pretty rosette and a brand new sentiment. This card was SUPER easy to make and comes together very quickly...a must have layout in anyone's collection for any occasion.
Now this card I decided to change up and show y'all how to use polka dots in a totally different way and boy are there a LOT of polka dots. I used an embossing folder to create a subtle polka dot background. Then on a strip of card stock I randomly stamped the little pansy cluster from the new summer flower accent set (love the little polka dots mixed in the flowers) then filled in the rest of the strip with the new small pansy. I finished off this polka dot extravaganza with 3 little butterflies made up out of tiny little polka dots from the darling decorative butterflies stamp set. The sentiment I used came from my fave set...all occasion sentiment set.
Well, that's it for me. Now off you go to visit with an uberly talented gal, Pattie Goldman. Hope you have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow with a fun new challenge for The Shabby Tea Room!
