Polka Dot Flowers?

I've gotta tell you, this card was really FUN to make!

I started with Hero Arts Big Flowers clear stamp set, and stamped the polka dot flower 4 times...once each on different paper. As you can see from the sample, each of the smaller three was cut away to layer smaller flowers on top of the polka dot flower. I stamped the leaf twice, then colored in a few of the dots with a Tombow Marker. The cardstock used for the yellow flower is Sunflower Medium Prismatics .

All the designer paper is different patterns from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper pad.

The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers Seeds of Kindness . It was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Labels One Nestabilities . I added a bit of Yellow Stickles to the butterfly on the sentiment. Clear Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest were added for texture and balance.

Thanks for stopping by to spend a few moments of your day with me.
