Create with Nacho Polka Dots - CCMC221 & NAC14

I've got another entry for today, as I won't have time to blog tomorrow.  Saturday is highschool football in our area and my oldest son plays center for the team.  It's going to be a crisp day to stand outside and watch football, but I wouldn't miss if for the world!  Tomorrows game is the one that really counts and if they win they are in the playoffs!  Good luck Redhawks!
Back to the card....I made this one for Create with Connie and Mary 221 sketch challenge & Nacho Average Challenge 14 color challenge. 

I used an old set from SU called Polka Dot and Paisley.  I love how it works with these soft, fun colors. This is another card I'm using for my adult ed class.  I dabbed a little 2-way glue on each flower and sprinkled them with Dazzling Diamond glitter.

I carried the polka dot theme through the card in the stamped backround, the embossed pink layer and the brown ribbon. I love the sentiment that comes with this set too....Find joy in the little things....which is exactly what I did with this card.  It gives me joy to create fun things like this! 
Here's a list of supplies.....
Stamps: Polka Dot and Paisley
Paper: So Saffron, White, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso
Ink: same as paper
Accessories: Pink Pirouette, So Saffron and Espresso ribbon, Polka dots EF, Dazzling diamonds glitter, 2-way glue pen
Thanks for taking a peek and have a cool day!
