PTI Princess Challenge- Flowers and Polka Dots

I am part of a wonderful blogging group called the PTI Princesses. I haven't been very good at keeping up with the challenges, but I do love to visit all the blogs! It is my turn to host a challenge and I chose Flowers and Polka Dots. Create a project of your choosing, but it must have flowers and polka dots! Shouldn't be too hard ;)

For my card I pulled out Polka Dot Basics II and stamped them in Aqua Mist. Then I stamped the top portion with Turning a New Leaf in Spring Moss. For my Flower I used the largest and then two flowers from the trio in Blooming Button Bits. If you have a Cricut and the Home Decor cartridge I have a fun surprise for you, there is a flower on there that fits these flower stamps! For the largest flower cut it with Black out ON at 2". For the largest flower in the trio, cut it at 1 1/2" and for the medium flower in the trio cut it at 1 1/4" both with the black out feature ON. There will be a nice amount of your base cardstock around the stamped image as well. I was very happy to discover this as it takes out the hassel of hand trimming:) Can't wait to see your flowers and polka dots! Hugs....
