Made For You...

Welcome back crafter friends! 

Today, I'm sharing a project for the new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog.  The theme is "Polka Dots" and there's a cool mood board for inspiration.

How fun is this mood board!  

There is also a prize to one winner chosen by random draw.

Creative Expressions Mini Stencil, Respect

I took inspiration from the flooring and the cupcake papers along with the colors and dots.


I had fun creating this card.  The colorful rosette flowers, inspired by the cupcake papers, pop against the darker woodgrain background.  They give lots of dimension and texture to the design.  I used buttons, twine and pearl hearts for the flower centers.  I stamped the sentiment with a new stamp I recently purchased and adhered it as a flower center. The leaves are cut twice with the bottom layer offset from the stamped top layer.  The stamp-die combo is a new release gifted to me by a friend.  I used a border punch and added a pop of green to match the leaves.
