Going Dotty

9:01 PM

... that's the theme of the current A Passion for Papertrey challenge! I love polka dots so it shouldn't be too hard to make a card with it but for some reason it took my forever LOL. Anyways, it's my dad's birthday this week and of course I just had to make a handmade card for him :-)

As for the subtle dots in the background, those are inspired by Dawn McVey's use of clear heat embossed polka dots during the July release. My card here is very small which is why I took the single line of dots from Beyond Basic Borders and heat embossed the dots row by row.

Talking of Ms Dawn, I'm super exited to be in the spotlight of her Raspberry Suite Color Challenge among so many talented girls:
I'm the "D" in the picture and if you want to, you can see my original blog entry here.
