DeNami Design February Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to My Paper Tales! I am a happy happy girl today. Why you ask? Because the theme of this month's DeNami blog hop is polka dots ~ squeal!!! You should be arriving here from Jennifer's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop or lose your way, the complete list of participants is on the DeNami blog.

Now on to my polka dotty card.
It's filled with a plethora of polka dots!!! 
Somebody stop me ~ wink*




I embossed a charcaol gray panel with polka dots then added it to a white card base. Deciding what color of polka dots to add to my card was the biggest decision LOL! So I went with a multi color polka dot ribbon that's been hanging around with me forever. After adding the bow to my card, I decided it looked a tad plain. So I revamped it with the addition of some red satin ribbon and a chunky button, much better.


The elegant square frame was stamped, colored, trimmed out and tucked into the bottom of the bow. The adorable polka dot elephant was  added inside the frame with foam dots. The polka dot circle, with a sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings set, was punched out. It's adhered to my card with foam tape. Red enamel dots, or what I like to think of as shiny polka dots, from my good friend Greta finish up my card. 

The next stop on the hop is Tenia. I know she'll have a snazzy jazzy number for us! Take care friends and have a blessed day ~Lisa

I really thought this should have been called "Lisa's DeNami Blog Hop"--LOL! Anyway, you rocked it as expected! I'm surprised to see your color scheme (one of my favorites!) as I figured you'd use pastels. You are always an inspiration, Lisa & I'm glad those dots came in handy!
