Polka Dot Happy!

Happy Friday friend!!! The weekend is just about here!

So onto today's card... I don't think I've ever played with this color combo before (Ocean Tides, Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate & Vintage Cream), but I really like it! Playing with a new card size too, this card measures 5" X 5". I was inspired by the new envelope sizes Papertrey Ink is now carrying. I don't have any yet, but plan on ordering some with my next order (when ever that is... he,he).
I was a little polka dot happy on this card, but I think it makes for a fun card. The polka dots on the ocean tides cardstock are stamped in versamark and in dark chocolate on the cream. Added a bright raspberry scalloped border with my Embossed Curves Border Punch and wrapped the card with cream ribbon. Emphasised the sentiment and stitch the buttons, onto the brown balloon baskets, with some cream twine. Rounded the corners of the image panel and card base and called it done.

I'm ready for the weekend, how about you? We are headed to the beach, for a quick day trip, to play and meet up with family. Then we have a fun Princes, Pony and Super Hero (that's a mouth full) birthday party to go to. My little man will get to dress up as Spiderman and ride a pony, it doesn't get any better than that! Fun, fun!

Hope you have a wonderful Friday and a fun weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
