Polka Dot Fun

Hello friends,

Where did the time go? But I don’t mind because it is time for our new challenge at Double D Challenges. The challenge this fortnight is really easy with the theme “Anything Goes with Polka Dots”. The inspiration board  is so beautiful – I just love all the colors and dots! Please ca dd pd4-tilevisit the Double D Challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from our talented designers and join in the fun! We have a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org. and a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I was inspired by the different colors in the photo and decided on colorful polka dot paper and pink background. I used a Marianne Design Craftables “basket” die cut for the pretty paper roses and layered it on a pink paper doily. I kept the card simple, but still shabby, by adding some sequins, butterflies, an embossed dot strip and a wax cord bow.  The sentiment was cut with a  Spellbinders Shapeabilities  sentiment die.

Challenges I entered:

    So sweet, indeed! And so pretty with the basket of flowers on the pink doily. Fabulous polka dots, even embossed polka dots. Love those petite butterflies, too.
