Lets Polka!

Hello all!
I'm hoping today's card rubs off on me a bit-- It's sunny and fun. Pink. Polka Dots. Fun!

Anyway, This card was one of those that was fun to create because I just kept stamping circles from the Mod Flowers set by Impression Obsession. I used black ink and then filled in the space with the small flowers in the set. I also wanted to create some "movement" in the design, so I took a dotted line from the Borders set and bent it to reach from one circle to another. I honestly have never bent clear stamps before but it is neat. The possibilities are endless there.

I used a scalloped edge scissor to create the black edging and used a 1/8" hole punch to get the eyelet look. (I haven't let myself buy any of those fancy edging punches yet!) The scalloped circle is a punch. I added a pop of color to the center using one of the IO Accent Templates and a sponge. Stamped the sentiment, added a ribbon and done!

Off for now.... Happy Hump Day!
