Dots n' Spots....

Hello friends!!  A quick post with a card for a couple of challenges:  ColourQ and CAS-ual Fridays.   ColourQ is one of my favorite challenges, but lately I have just not been doing a very good job of creating cards using the color combos.   So, I took a bit of a break and I think the break has helped because I really like the card I made using this week's color combo of Real Red, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Tempting Turquoise & white.  Instead of Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo I used Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss.  



The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a card using dots or spots, depending on what you want to call them. This worked perfectly with the ColourQ challenge because the inspiration photo is of a cool towel covered in dots!  So naturally the first stamp set that came to mind was my PTI set Dot Spot.  Then I thought of one of my most recent PTI purchases, Background Basics Dots & Spots.  But in the end, Dots & Spots just didn't have the look I was going for so I went with Dot Spot.  I stamped the largest circle using the Tempting Turquoise ink and then added the smaller circles using the Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point colors.  The sentiment, from Signature Greetings, was stamped using Real Red.   I really, really like how the card turned out.... clean and simple a good amount of white space.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up!
