CFC 109 Polka Dots

Hello and happy Saturday everyone.
The next CFC challenge ( click ) is here which gives me the perfect reason to get crafty again :-)
This week we should make a card with some kind of polka dots and guess what - I am SO IN LOVE with my new Tim Holtz embossing Folder that creates awesome Polka dots (well - bubbles - to be perfectly honest, but they really could be polka dots as well :-))

So ... first I embossed my cardstock, then went over the dots with my acrylic paint dabber in pearl. This looks sooooo pretty, I swear! :-))))
The stamp is from PI, embroidered Blooms and I am so glad I finally used it today as it was waiting for months now for me to notice that it`s there!
Here`s the finished card:

The embroidered blooms stamp has two parts: one covers the inner part of the image - I stamped it with Memento black ink.
And the other part covers the edges. I decided to use Versamark ink for the edges and embossed them with silver embossing powder.
This added a really nice shine which I hope you can see here in detail:

Oh and the Background was REALLY fun to do.
I inked up my acrylic block with simply chartreuse and hawaiian shores ink (PI), then spritzed it with water and pressed everything down onto some watercolor paper. I´ll definitely have to do that again!!!
The sentiment and banner is from SSS (banner sayings) and as a finishing touch I wrapped some twine around my card before adhering the panel with foam dots.

This card was so much fun to make!!! Hope you like it too! :-)
