Inventory Challenge #51 - Polka Dots

HELP! ! !  I'm seeing spots before my eyes!

Polka dots was a really easy and very fun challenge for me since I had recently started sorting my designer papers into categories - Dots, White Dots, Stripes ...

Without further ado - my card!
Like I said I have lots of polka dotted papers all sorted and easy to locate!

The stamps I used are Tilda with Tulips and Yummy Muffin.

All the designer papers are Stampin' Up! 
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Magnolia, Hooked on Crafts.  The ribbon is from my stash.

Tilda and her muffin tuffet are colored with Copics.  The tuffet dots and ribbon are covered with Stickles.

The inside is decorated with more SU papers, flower sprays, ribbon.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The jotting panel was cut using  my Cuttlebug and Labels Four nesties. It is also polka dots, but very light so it can be written on.

Here is a close up of the flower bouquet.  The stems were tied together with the sheer ribbon, than attached to the card with glue dots.  Some of the flowers were kept in place with tiny glue dots.

Since I don't have any long thin leaves to help cover the stems, I just left the stems long as a real bouquet would be.

Here is a close up of Tilda and her tuffet so you can see the detail in her outfit and the muffin.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing the dots before my eyes.  Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!

Be sure to stop by my teammates' blogs and see what they have done with polka dots. 

Next week will be the first year anniversary of the Inventory Reduction Challenge with a theme of "Anything Goes".  Be sure to stop back to see what we've done with that challenge.
