Lots 'O Dots

Dear Ones~
The boys are busy eating breakfast, so thought I would take this time for my next post. This one is for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, to use polka dots, and for the Sweet and Sassy Friday Challenge to make a background.

Here's my card:
I used a Flourishes dot border stamp to make a pattern on one side of the paper, and then put the greeting on the blank side. I drew a line with a pencil to be sure my stamping was straight. It was so much fun to pick out and use the different colors of ink. This card came together really fast, not much to it, really. Used the flowers from my stash and colored a button brad for the middle. Then I just stuck some various sized enamel dots randomly on top of the stamped image.

Here are my supplies:
Flourishes  So Distressed Stamp Set
Flourishes Friendship and Flowers Stamp Set
Bo Bunny Very Vintage Double Dots Designs Paper Stack
Gina K Designs 120 lb Card Stock in Sweet Mango
Gina K Designs Dye Ink in Sweet Mango, Grass Green, Turquoise Sea
Flowers, Brad and Enamel Dots from my Stash

Time to play a game with the Wild Thangs. Thanks for stopping by -and stay warm my friends!!
