Am I really Dotty?

I know a few of my friend think I'm dotty at times Lol!

This week it’s Vanessa making sure we all go dotty and see spots before our eyes with the new Daring Cardmakers challenge.

Yes, it’s spots all the way because she wants Polka Dots all over our cards.

The dare has provided me with the opportunity of doing a birthday card that my brother has asked me to make for his wife’s birthday in January…..yah….I’m ahead of myself for once!

I’ve kept my card quite simple, using two spotty papers and some dry embossing and then made the three embellishments using this new set of stamps.

Unfortunately I can’t tell you who they’re by because there’s no name on the packaging but I brought the at Ally Pally in September.

I’ve stamped part of the images onto the circles and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder and I’ve then gone over them with Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
They were mounted on 3D foam and I’ve added a little bit of copper sparkle to each of the flower heads.

Hope that’s dotty enough Vanessa?

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments, it’s always much appreciated.
