Challenge Entry: Polka Dot Hello

Hello Sunday! The sun over Singapore is bright and happy today. :)

So, let's start off with the first card I did last night while Hubby Cookie was sleeping.  Don't tell on me! Hahaha...

Here's my Polka Dot Hello card. :)

Close up.

Card stock: American Crafts
DP: Bazzill Basics, My Mind's Eye, Bella Blvd.
Punches: Martha Stewart, EK Success
Ribbon: local DIY shop
Stamps: Hero Arts

I am entering this card into the following challenges.
1. Top Tip Tuesday - Layer It Up

** TOP TIP **
 It doesn't have to be all lined up.  Skewing the layers a bit creates more interest I found out in this card design. :)

I punched out two circles - 1 1/2" and 1 1/4" in coloured cardstock coordinating with my DPs.  I layered them up and glued them together in a bit of skewed alignment.  For the "hello" sentiment, I also glued it slight to the side of the layered circle instead of the centre.

Works, eh?

3. 365 Cards - Day 235 - Seeing SpotsThree different papers that feature polka dots
4. The Sweet Stop - SSS131 October 22

5. Scrapbook Sisters - Card Challenge 57 - Circles

Another gorgeous card for us from you - love it that you craft at any opportunity, I wont tell ;) This card is so pretty and I love your colours.

Great Top Tip for us too - I LOVE layering things a bit off centre (but I usually do it to hide mistakes in my measuring!), your sentiment piece looks amazing and I love that the text piece is off centre too - great effect, thanks for sharing :)

Thanks for joining us over at Top Tip Tuesday for our 'Layer It Up' Challenge :)
