Love You Polka Dots

Howdy! Hope you all are doing well today.

Today I wanted to share another card I made using my new PTI Polka Dot Basics II.
Oh man am I loving this set, I just can't seem to put it down! lol :) The sentiment fits the card perfectly since this card is loaded with so many of the things I love. So this seems like the perfect opportunity to share a few with you (as of now anyways, it will probably be different next week. lol). :)


  • Background Stamp: Polka Dot Basics II
  • Image Stamp: Tree from Beyond Basic Borders
  • Neutral Cardstock: Kraft
  • Punch: Tag, Scalloped Edge & Corner Rounder (Love these three equally)
  • Button: Pearlescence Berry Sorbet (silly, I know)
  • Ribbon: Twill

Anyways, enough about me. Here is a close up of the tag...

This tag would also look great by itself. Just hang it from a ribbon tied to the handle of a kraft gift bag. I just might have to give that a try!

Now that you know my favs, maybe you guys can share a little of what you love with me, if you would like.

Well thank you for stopping in today!!! Hope I didn't bore you too much talking about my self. lol! Hope you liked the card!
