My 50th Blog Post!

Hello everyone! I started my blog in October, and I honestly can’t believe it, but this is my 50th blog post! Yikes!!! I’m really enjoying blogging, and I am so grateful to each and every one of you for visiting, and leaving such sweet comments...Thank You!!!

I created this card for this week’s challenge at CASology ~ It’s week 78, and our Cue Card is ‘Dot’.



 I used some of the circles from Neat & Tangled Party Dots and the centers of the flowers from PTI’s Beautiful Blooms II, in 3 colors, and decreasing in size as I stamped upward on the card panel. I added enamel dots for interest, stamped my sentiment, and placed a small strip of patterned paper along the side.

I hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks again for stopping by ~
Barb



Supplies:
Stamps: Neat & Tangled - Party Dots; Papertrey Ink - Beautiful Blooms II, Signature Greetings
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Select White
Patterned Paper: Amy Tangerine - Sketchbook
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Hero Arts - Pale Tomato, Mint Julep, Soft Pool
Enamel Dots: My Minds Eye
