Polka Dots are all the rage at the moment and I thought that I would kill two birds with one
stone with this card as there are two Challenges,  Clearly Besotted Challenge Seeing Spots and CAS-ual Fridays CFC109 Polka Dotsasking for this theme.

I think that I am being influenced by the sun at the moment  -  there seems to a great deal of 'sunny yellow'  around in this creation!

Sunny Side Up

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps

Stamps Set - 'You Are',   Sentiment 'Honeycomb'
Dies - 'You Are'

I started off by stamping the swirl for the stem of the flower in Memento 'Bamboo Leaves' - I have had this stamp for ages -  the polka dots circles were  randomly stamped around it in Hero Arts 'Butter Bar'.

The flower was then die cut from a piece of Hero Arts Hues Card, stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

To finish off I attached a piece of matching Yellow card which had been punched with a scallop edge punch.

That is all for now. 
Hope that you are all coping with the heat wave in the UK!

Thank you so much for visiting.

  5. I like your cards. I like how you layer them and keep them simple. It is hot here in the states too! 92 degrees and humidity makes it like 107 degrees, for several days now. Stay cool!
