Polka Dot Delight


These Polka Dot Flowers are adorable and are part of the Layers of Colors set, Polka Dot Love...when I first started this card I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but just kept going and adjusting along the way - I am very happy with the end result. The flowers have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Shimmer Mist in Tattered Leather and Vintage Pink, I love the soft and subtle shimmer that it gives, rather than a glaring shine, especially for this look!

The window box is made with embossed card, using the Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder and inked with Tim Holtz Distressing ink - Tattered Leather! Crotchet lace has been added to the rim of the planter and a ladybug embellishment added, along with a little shovel in the window box. This was all then layered onto embossed CS which has also been inked, the Stylised Flowers Embossing Folder which I have distressed.

I wasn't too thrilled with the way it was looking until I added the distressed layer of pink behind the main layer - it just brought it all together (phew!) Isn't it amazing how that can happen!!
This card is for the following challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday where Liz Williams is the Guest Hostess and has chosen pearls....anything along the pearl theme - I think these adorable pearl buttons count me in there! Thanks Liz!
2RB which is an inspiration Sketch - I was inspired by the gorgeous colours - so thank you ladies!
Thank you so much for stopping by - I have a few cards I am finishing off today...so there may be more from me yet...I will see how the day progresses. I hope your day is FABULOUS! God bless you!

  6. The way you made the planter box is so clever!! Just love the lady beetle..some call her a lady bug but I feel that is a little harsh.I like the added shovel. You used the poka dot stamps beautifully!!Overall a winner! It looks like a lovely pot that would be in your pretty garden!
