Timeless Tuesday #259 - Polka Dots

Hope everyone has made it through all the crazy weather unscathed. I'm over the snow totally. Two "snows" in Atlanta now. It has been enough for me! Hope you can find some time to play along with us this week for the easy POLKA DOT challenge! Find all the details on the Flourishes Blog. 

Check out the Polka Dots from the Team!

 I know... I went purple again! I had it sitting on the desk and I just got this yummy purple seam binding that sparked the color theme! I inked up the hot air balloon from the very cute Lots of Thoughts set for my card.

I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and used Copics to add some quick color to three balloons. I hand cut them out after coloring them. 

 I embossed the white panel behind the balloons with a cloud design. but it got kind of lost as I added three balloons. The original plan was for just one... but it looked to alone. I don't do well leaving white space, I always feel I need to cover it all! 

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Elderberry and is from the Lots of Thoughts Stamp set too. The finished card is 4 1/4" square.
