So Thoughtful...

Hey there... back with another card for the current CASE Study challenge and ColourQ



I just love this week's ColourQ combo of Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Delightful Daffodil, Early Espresso and white.  Cherry Cobbler is my absolute favorite red.  I love how deep and rich it is, especially against white.   When I saw November CASE Study muse, Kryssi's card I just had to play along.  I love the super clean and stunning, as my friend Sue would say, design of the card.   I thought I had a large solid flower stamp that I could use, but unfortunately, I didn't.   So instead I got a little dotty with my card, combining PTI's Dot Spot with Polka Dot Basics II.  I stamped the largest circle from Dot Spot in Pumpkin Pie and then used So Saffron to stamp the border using the smallest polka dot border in the set.  The sentiment from Signature Greetins was stamped using Early Espresso.  I decided to add the yellow button to the center for just a bit more interest. 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Cherry Cobbler; Ink:  SU! Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron & Early Espresso; Stamps:  PTI; Button:  My Mind's Eye

Hello Rosie
Gorgeous design, I am reading that you used Cherry Cobbler but it looks a little orangie in the photo, nevertheless I love all those 'dot's!!!! it makes a unique flower.
And I especially love how you have continued your 'dots' in a band off the edge.
Your sentiment, now this is where you and I differ in thinking, I would have placed it up there, you know where, in all that negative space you have going on which really needs to be filled, it would be torture for me to leave it blank just absolute TORTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But you see Rosie, where you have placed the sentiment just works does it not?
