It is FRIDAY - for most people it is the start of the weekend, but for me, I have one more day of work and then it is MY weekend. However, tonight, I took up the challenge on the 365 Card blog for today. The challenge was to use polka dots, paper piercing and pop dots. Well, I have quite a bit of designer paper and I was SURE that I had some polka dots somewhere - and I was right. This paper is from a retired designer paper pack from Stampin' Up! and I just happened to have a piece of Orchid Opulence - which is one of the coordinating colors for this polka dot paper. So, once I chose my paper - then I had to decide what I wanted to do with my card. Well, I recently got this new set of stamps from Paper Wishes. I LOVE everything Tea - and couldn't resist buying this wonderful set. On the back of the stamp package there is an idea for a card, so I took my card sketch and idea from that. I used another piece of DP from the same package and edged it with this beautiful lace from Stampin' Up! I stamped the Teapot with chocolate chip and then colored the rose a bit with orchid opulence. I pierced the top left corner and the right bottom corner and then pierced around the handle and the spout. After matting this, I popped it off the card front with my pop dots. I don't often do the inside of the card, but decided that this one just had to have the inside completed. So I stamped the teacup with the chocolate chip and then added my sentiment. It is a simple card, but I like the way it turned out and once I decided how I wanted to go about creating it - it came together rather quickly.
Thanks for stopping by the paper spa this evening - I would love it if you left a comment - it really makes my day! Come back tomorrow to see what the challenge is and how I am inspired by it.
