Polka Dot Greeting Card Swap

As I mentioned a week or so ago, I joined my first card swap at Splitcoaststampers.  Well, I mailed them out and our hostess received the package today!  Below is the card that I made.  I had a "ball" with this theme!  I LOVE polka-dots, and tried to put them into every aspect of the card.
 I used an embossing folder with a circle theme, and again used my sanding block to let some of the white come through.  I used three pattern papers from My Mind's Eye, and one Chocolate Chip circle that I ran through a polka-dot embossing folder.
 These colors aren't showing the best, but are Chocolate Chip, a turquoise that closely resembles Tempting Turquoise, White, and some of the pattern papers have almost a lime green hue to the dots.

 I used the Chocolate Chip corduroy button for more polk-dots
 And I used three brads for more polka-dot mania!
 Here is a final look at my first swap card.  Thanks for looking!  I'd love to know what you think!


  1. This is a really cute card & I love the colors you used! The circle theme is awesome with the added texture....very nice work & TFS!!!!

  2. I love polka dots too and you did awesome by adding so many different types of circles and textures

  3. Now how neat is this!! LOVELY card! The circular patterns and circle cutouts are ingenious - the card came together beautifully with the colors and the cardstock! You've done a fabulous job, this one is SUPER fabulous!
