The Flower Challenge #38 - Add Dots or Stripes

Hello friends.  I'm playing along with The Flower Challenge today and they are looking for DOTS or STRIPES along with our flower images.


I started with PTI's Bold Borders: Polka Dot Die and Altenew's Handpicked Bouquet and came up with this:


I started by die cutting the Bold Borders: Polka Dot Die in white and then adhered it to a white card base...I love the white on white look this gives!  The flower image was stamped and embossed using Versafine Black Onyx ink and clear embossing powder, and then I stamped with Gina K inks for all the color (Lipstick, Red Hot, Cherry Red, Grass Green, & Fresh Asparagus).


I finished with a sentiment from the Handpicked Bouquet set and a piece of crochet thread across the top.

Make sure you check out all the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT and already in the gallery using DOTS or STRIPES, and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
