Posies and polka dots :)

Hello again - Happy Wednesday !
Yep you made it half way through the week ! Just a couple more days until the weekend :)

I know that I have been a blogging fiend this week - so sorry to my followers who will most likely be sick of me by now ! But my mojo is rockin' at the moment ! I am finding myself fired up for crafting again after a period where I really lacked enthusiasm for it. 

This time I was inspired by the fabulous inspiration card by Laurie Willison over at Muse and used her super layout to create my card.

 I was also fired up by the current challenge over at the catered crop recipe swap (one of my most fav' places to visit for a mojo shake up) This week the lovely Linda wants to see polka dots on our creations.

I instantly knew I wanted to use black and white polka dots but I didn't have any DP with them so I took some black CS, some dies and my eyelet punches and made some myself !!

I then mirrored the polka dots by adding a circle for my sentiment and also with my felt rolled roses, rhinestones and even the little black button on my butterfly. I hand cut the leaves from felt and added a little bit of simple back stitching for an extra touch.

This really was a fun card to create - I have always enjoyed making handmade flowers and I love how the die cut "polka dots" turned out :)

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Craft room challenges - Handmade embellishments (Flowers & leaves)
City crafter challenge - Just for you my friend
Crazy 4 challenges - Show friendliness

Thanks so much for visiting me today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

I think you must be kidding me right now! You MADE your own polka dot paper?! OMG. I adore polka dot paper and never once thought about making my own if I didn't have the color or style I wanted. I owe you BIG! Talk about inspired!! Okay, okay, I'm going.
