Hello my friend

A second entry for the Less is More Challenge: polkadots.
And a second entry for CAS Colours & Sketches.

I said the sentiment gave me an idea (or two) for another card in my last post. I only now had time to make it. It's also very much inspired by me first card for CC&S, see photo below (with the butterfly)
I used  the Simon Says Stamp butterflies stampset  for the big polkadot hello and the tiniest "my friend" stamp.

Stamped it all with Ranger dye inks (classic cherry, cheese puff, lemon twist, electric lime and Carribean coast as well as black tie for the sentiment).


Few homade enamel dots and gluedots to finish the look, although without them would still be a nice card.


I measured the middle and started with yellow, then I should have done the outer two, but I didn't..so now it doesn't quite fit, but I see them as balloon soaring upwards...or bubbles  emerging from the cards' edge and I kinda like thatm so I left it instead of making a new one, happy accident I guess ;-)
