HMFMC120

Here's my card for this week's HMFMC120 which is to use polka dots, circles, and all around fun. I chose this "wagon ride" image and colored it with Copics, adding a computer generated sentiment punched with a circle, and matted with a Quickutz bottlecap mat in black. The bottom border was made with a SNSS scalloped border die, and the center of the sentiment panel was cut with a SB Lotus die from silver-embossed cardstock. I added some silver brads to the wagon wheels, and added blue rims with a glaze pen, then sponged the sky with Ranger tumbled glass ink. The red dsp is from Recollections, but the black polka dot dsp was a scrap and I have no idea who makes it.
Thanks for stopping by today - I wish you a great day!
