The Perfect Polka

I created this card for the Sketch Challenge over at the Outlawz.  This paper was so pretty and the polka dots are raised to give it even greater texture.  I just love the Memory Box Dies and it took a while to decide which one to use.  This is actually a buckle but I decided I could hide the slide bar with a row of half pearls and I think it works just fine!

Papers: Neenah Natural White CS; Springhill "Orchid" Vellum Cover; DCWV "Nana's Kids (Purple Polka Dot Paper) 61/2" x 41/4 Premium Stack; Brown Polk Dot Paper (From My Stash); Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots; Die cut:  Memory Box "Ringed Buckle"; Lace: Prima (purchased at The Frantic Stamper); Brad:  Basic Grey Stitched Brads; Ink: Momento Rich Cocoa; Sentiment: studio G

  4. This is a very pretty card. I love the use of the polka dots and the purple. I might need to scraplift this card, because purple is my oldest daughter's favorite color and her birthday is next Saturday.

  7. Your cards have always made me say wow. Your color selection is the best, and your layouts are always unique. The difference between a real designer and a pretender (that would be me).
