Polka Dot Mania


I put a lot of polka dot strips together to make this background, just adding half going in one direction and the others in a different direction. I cut some sizzlet white stems and pulled out some of my neglected flower punches and used Red and Yellow to make the flowers, adding mini black brads to the centers. The SSS sentiment was heat embossed with white ep on black and die cut with a SU! Chalk Talk framelit die. I added a different punched mini yellow flower to the sentiment panel, adding a tiny black gemstone to the center.

I'm sharing this with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "going dotty" (use polka dots)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you're doing!

Polka dots are always cheerful, I think, and that is certainly true here. I like the script of the sentiment too, and the die cuts and punched flowers add to the charm.
