Do the Polka

When I saw the March Diva Dare at the Verve Blog, I just had to play along, as I have been a lover of all things dotted for as long as I've been making cards.  And such a fun name for this challenge: Do the Polka!
Here's the card I had so much fun making:

Do the Polka

The other thing that I've really embraced is washi tape, and so I pulled out these Doodlebug washis and then found inks to match and stamped and cut out the flowers and leaves from Verve's Bloom & Grow set.  I added enamel dots to the centers of the flowers and stamped some extra dots on the card face, too.  Do you think I have enough dots? 


Just love how this turned out - hope these happy colors make you smile, too!  Thanks for visiting me today!

  4. What a great but simple design. Although I am rather addicted to washi tape I could use this layout to make good use of all those left over strips I have camped out on my desk
