Autumn Polka Dots

The challenge this month for the Papertrey Blog Hop was to use polka dots. I love polka dots and had a lot of fun making this card. I wanted to make something "bigger and badder", but only had time to make one card.This card uses Polka Dot Basics, My Punny Valentine and Mailbox Greetings. I used Papertrey White, Kraft, Pure Poppy and Ripe Avocado cardstock. The ribbon is Papertrey Pure Poppy, of course, the best red on the market. Love it! I used the Autumn Leaves kaleidacolor inkpad to ink up the polka dots and the leaves. The squirrel is stamped with Palette charcoal ink and then I highlighted some of the areas with Copic Cool Gray #3 and #5 markers. I also outlined the leaves with a stardust pen, but it doesn't show up in the picture at all. :( It's super sparkly in real life. The sentiment is from some stamps I found at JoAnn's. They are from The Paper Company. The leaf brad is from my stash. I am not sure exactly where I bought it, but I am thinking the Oriental Trading Co.

Thanks for looking. Have a blessed day!
