Dots - take two ....

... I'm rather enjoying the challenges from this week's Less is More - LIM38 - polka dots and the lovely layout from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC70.


So I had another go  - I've taken a few liberties with the sketch this time.  I stamped some doily images off the edge of the card at the top left and bottom right and then used some of the flowers I had left over from yesterday's card.  Finally, I added a simple sentiment to say thanks.  I think you can still see the general layout of the sketch.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Dainty Doilies 2 Small,  Dainty Doilies Large; Chocolate Baroque - Big Flowers
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Wisteria Wonder (another of the new in-colours)
Promarkers:  Orchid, Honeycomb, Cocktail Pink
Accessories: Polka Dot Parade - Papertrey (download); Glass gem and card from stash

We had a fun time at Camera Club last night.  I finally selected my two images to submit for judging and eventually settled on titles - now I've got to wait two weeks to hear what the judge thinks!  It was Jonathan's last night at the Club - he flies to America next Monday - so people kept stopping by to wish us luck.  I had to explain that I'm not going - yet!  Anyway, that's all for now.  We have a busy(ish) day lined up, but should still have time to play.  See you soon!

Good morning Deborah, what a beautiful card.
Thank you for your lovely comment on my photographs. I do not belong to a club, I'm afraid time constraints don't allow it. I like to just go strolling with my cameras whenever I can :o)

I think I like this one even more than the first one you made - I really like how the flowers echo the doily shape at the bottom. Great take on the sketch.

Didn't realise Jonathan was off so soon - you'll have quite a mountain of stuff to do on your own. Hope it goes OK.

I love your take on the sketch Deborah, the 'off the edge' stamping is so effective and perfect little flower accents. Gosh... Jonathan's not been back long either! Bet you can't wait to join him :)
