It's all about the polka dots

Happy Sunday!  To my fellow Canadians having a long weekend (I know it's not everyone) - hope you are enjoying it!  To my friends in northeastern North America... hope you are staying warm, still have power and the snow isn't impacting your life too much.

I was never a fan of polka dots until I started crafting.  Recently, my mom saw me in a polka dot top and she was quite shocked!  I chalk it up to all the fabulous polka dots in crafting.  Paper Smooches Sparks is highlighting the polka dot trend in their challenge this week!

I wish I could say this simple card was a 'quickie'.  Alas no... many iterations... it almost didn't happen at all!  However,  I had some more coffee and stuck with and it *mostly* turned out how I wanted it.  ;)

The sketch I used is from CAS(E) this Sketch #14.  It's so fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to both of the DTs for all of their fabulous inspiration.
