Polka Dots

Running later than expected with my first LIM entry this week. Saturday I struggled with a migraine, I tried crafting after tea but my mojo up and left home. Sunday we went out for lunch then went relative visiting so it was early evening when we got home. Luckily by that time my mojo had wandered back and I got a few cards made before bedtime.


This uses Sissix and Cuttlebug embossing folders, main image is layered onto black card. Card is finished with polka dot ribbon, two bows and a button with bakers twine (button and ribbon I won recently at Pretty Little Ribbon Shop). I've used the swiss dots folder to emboss the snowman and Christmas tree by hand.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - polka dots
Craft Room Challenge - black and white
Charisma Cardz - embossing
Karen's Doodles - emboss it
OSAAT - emboss it
