Polka Dots

 The flower outline die doesn't have a base to it so it would be see through and I just am not as much of a fan of that but I decided to trace the die form onto the back of some pattern paper and that will be the base for my flower.  There were no leaf die to go with it so I borrowed some from another set to go with it.

  • Die-Namites - Rosy Rose die, traced around die to get the polka dot background for the flower
  • P13 - Secret Garden paper for bottom portion
  • Paper Studio - Silkscreen embossing folder
  • Spellbinders - Rose Creations die (leaves) Labels trio die
  • Recollections - Gems
  • Gemini - Sentiment dies

I would like to share todays card with the following challenges:

Double D Challenge - Polka dots

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, and for all your thoughts and prayers for my brother and our family.

Your flower looks exactly as it should. It appears the shadow is part of the die set. Beautifully done, Connie. I love that P13 paper at the base, too. I've been thinking of you. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous purple polka dot flower with us at Double D!
