Polka Dot Wishes

Here's my card for this week's Off The Wall Craftiness Challenge. Isn't this a fun color combination?


I was instantly drawn to that fun cake and decided to create a card that mimics the circles, bow and trim. Enter my card. I used Whisper White for my background and adhered little circles in Marina Mist from the Itty Bitty Punches set. For a little element of cute, I added little flowers in Pumpkin Pie. Then I tied a Pumpkin Pie Taffeta bow and added the sentiment from SU!'s A Little Birthday Cheer set. The most tedious part of making this card was adding the pom pom trim around the edge of my card. I found this stuff in my stash and thought it would be perfect. I finally got it to stay put after attaching a couple extra layers of cardstock behind it and adhered it all to a Marina Mist card. Thanks for stopping by today!
