It's been in my head.

I check Beate's Blog daily and I have loved all the Be Inspired challenges she has posted but I just never seem to get a card made for them. This card has been in my head all week and I finally got to put it to paper today. I caved and finally ordered the Polka Dots basics stamp set from PTI. This was the inspiration piece she posted, It is a kate Spade card.
The sketch is from this week's sketch Challenge over at SCS. I cheated though, and made my card a standard A2 size.
I pulled out some of my retired, Au Chocolate paper and used the polka dots in similar colors (soft sky, and PTI Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise) to make little bubbles. I also used a retired hostess set from SU (Along the Same Lines) and this years SAB set, Many Thoughts. I accented some of the bubbles with Crystal Effects. I love this stuff and up until recently hardly ever used it. Try it if you have it, if you don't have it, get it!

Thanks for stoppin by!
