Polka Dot Challenge

A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA Challenge #5

Michelle's super fun challenge was to make a card with Polka Dots. We can use anything polka dot - stamps, ribbon, paper etc.

I had so much fun with this I decided to make 2 cards. Both cards I used Polka Dot paper from Doodlebug and all stamps used are from A Muse :)



The Birdhouse was stamped on card base and then I stamped it again and cut out the birdhouse and glued it down to the base. The little bird by the sentiment I cut out and glued on. Sunflowers are colored with markers and then added Orange and Yellow Copic Spica Glitter Pen on top for the "gotta have" sparkle stuff :) I did put a little sparkle on the birds tail feathers too.




In the closeup you can see I stamped the birthday cake a second time and cut it out to pop up on dimensionals. 2-way glue pen and glitter to add birthday sparkle on the cake and candle flames. I love my new Presents Background stamp (Thanks Katie!)
