Paper Playtime SIWS Challenge #82 - Polka Dots!!

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend :) It's time for a Say It With Sentiments Challenge at Paper Playtime. The theme for Challenge #82 is Polka Dots...we want to see your Polka Dot projects along with a sentiment. The prize for this challenge is the "Chalkboard Special Kit" from Close To My Heart Consultants Lucy Kelleher (CTMH USA) and Darla Haverstock (CTMH Canada).

I made this card for a dear friend :) The solid cardstock is from Close To My Heart. The yellow and white polka dot paper is from My Mind's Eye Sunshine Forever stack. The base is a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle embossed with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels 25, the edges inked with Cantaloupe Memento ink. The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels 5 embossed with Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.


The center label is a Spellbinders Labels 4, stamped with a music notes rubber stamp and inked with Cantaloupe Memento Ink. The yellow polka dot flower is from Close To My Heart, the edges glittered with fine white glitter. The reason I chose this color combo is because I had a beautiful aqua flower as well but I tried to wet it to shape it and ruined it :( So this aqua flower is a punch with crystals added. The twine is from CTMH, as are the butterflies. The butterflies were inked with Cantaloupe ink, stamped with Perfect Medium and glittered before the gems were applied. The tag is a Spellbinders Nested Pennant die. "My Friend" is from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set.

  28. Sometimes your projects are almost too beautiful to look at. They just pull at something deep in my heart. This project is one of those. There is something about the music paper, the teal blue paper, the butterflies, that make me want to just put my head down and cry!

  32. Lisa,
    I love the color combination - it's stunning. You have such a knack for selecting just the right die for each layer. How to use an embossing folder and still keep the embossed edge from the die?
    I always learn from your creations along with being amazed!
    Hugs,
