POLKA!


Dots! ;D LOVE them. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!! So when I saw that Nina's I{Heart} Ribbon challenge was about polka dot ribbon, I was ON that! :)

I recently purchased some Glubers and haven't really used them, so I decided to make some polka dotted ribbon flowers--so fun!!!

I was also inspired by the Play Date Cafe color challenge this week...
Maroon...Copper...Tumeric

Here's the inspiration photo~
GORGEOUS, am I right?!

Well, I made three flowers for one card, but they were just too much, so I ended up making three cards.

Here they are~

Isn't that a lovely little trio of cards?! :) I'm thinking they would make a darling gift...

What do ya think?! I LOVE the way my little flowers came out!!! I think they're a fabulous addition to any project and will be making more of them in the near future! :) Hope you join along with these fabby challenges--happy stamping!

OOOOPS! I almost forgot--follow me!!! If I get 100 followers by January 1, 2012, I'll be doing a blog candy give away!!! :) I'm getting the goods this weekend--so please help me give it away! :)

Love the simplicity of these beautiful cards,the gorgeous flower is enough by itself, but I have to agree the sentiments are lovely too. Are the flowers difficult to create?

The way you made the flowers makes your cards so special. The color combination is great. I just found your blog, I also collect quotes and send them to my daughter for the last 25 years. Now I have a 15 yr. old grandson who receives them. Happiness, Carol G.
