Going Dotty

I'm feeling more with it today so have had to catch up on so many things, but first, some crafting!!

This quick little card is for the Less is More challenge where the theme is Polka Dots. I hope that Mandi and Chrissie don't think that I've over done the dots! :)




 
This started with a square white card where I stamped the dotty flower stems and coral flowers in the corner. I then added the sentiment and stamped two small spotted butterflies. The large butterfly was two-stamped ( using my Stamp-a-ma-jig ) on white card and punched out before being stuck down just along his body so his, or her, wings are dimensional.

Recipe :  Card = Whisper White
Stamps = Simply Said and Flight of the Butterfly
Inks = Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, and Calypso Coral
Tools = SU Butterfly punch and Stamp-a-ma-jig

I'm not sure why but this card made me smile as I made it ( perhaps I am still a bit delirious??)

It's Monty's 4th Birthday today, and because he's my baby, he had a few pressies to open this morning. All, apart from one, have been eaten or ragged about and taken around the garden in his mouth to see the sites!! Bless him, he absolutely loves ducks, and here he's sat on the garden bench with a very slobbery duck.





Mon loves to take over the bench, because he has a better view of the neighbourhood cats and squirrels from up there.





Anyway, that's it for now, I'll be back later with another card.

Thanks for dropping in to my blog today, I hope you liked what I've made.

  8. Lovely CAS card Bev. Wonderful color selection; I never think to place a bold with a softer color and it's always a lovely combination.
