Hey there, friends, happy Paper Players Sunday! Sweet Anne Marie is our hostess this week for a fun Clean-and-Simple challenge featuring....Polka Dots!
Happy and fun, large or small, polka dots are the perfect pattern. Today, I used these fabulous colors from Arielle and the DT over at the ColourQ:
I love, love these colors together--anything with Basic Gray is a winner in my book. I liked them so much that I made two cards! For the first one, I took a very clean-and-simple approach letting the designer paper do the work:
Not much 'splaining needed here--just some circle punches, dry embossing and Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine! The sentiment is peeking through the negative space of the circle although it is difficult to see in the photo. I wasn't totally in love with this card so I made a second one:
This one I like a little bit better although I wouldn't call it clean-and-simple! The Flower Fest flowers were all embossed with white embossing powder three times each on Wisteria Wonder and Tempting Turquoise cardstock then fussy-cut. I'm going to keep this one short today....but I would love to know what you think of today's cards. Which one do you prefer? For even more inspiration, check out my amazing teammates on the Design Team. I know they will inspire you to play along with Anne Marie's Polka Dot Parade challenge! Just make sure to do so before Friday, May 25th at Noon (PST) when the challenge closes. I hope to see you in the gallery!
