Polka Dot Bliss

Have you seen the delicious inspiration piece Julee chose for this month's Project Parade? When I first saw it, it made me think of a 1950's soda shop. I don't know why, but when I think of the 1950s and soda shops or sock hops, I also think of polka dots! That's where I started with this inspiration. I used the Welcome Baby Cuttlebug Folder on the Pink Pirouette cardstock. I used the three different sized flowers from Grateful Elegance, and a sentiment from Beautiful You. The last "frilly" touches were the Threading Water border punch and organdy ribbon.

  1. Charmaine's really captured the sentiment of this card with her use of embossed polka dots and the sweetest shade of pick cardstock. The organdy ribbon is the perfect touch. I have GOT to purchase this stamp set!
