Seeing Spots

Polka dots actually. That's the theme for this week's House Mouse Challenge. I had dotted paper laying out all over the place and finally decided on this one with the pastel dots and designed the rest of the card around that. Punched the border of the polka dots and attached it to the base. Ran the lavender CS through Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The image was colored with my Prismacolors/baby oil for blending, cut out and embossed with oval Nestabilities, chalked while still in the die. Then cut pink mat and the tiny oval for the sentiment, which is from Verve. A really simple card, nice and flat for easy mailing.

Stamps: House Mouse "Sweet Kiss", Verve Artful Elegance.
Paper: The Paper Studio, My Mind's Eye.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Spellbinders, MS border punch, chalks, Prismacolor pencils/baby oil.
