Less is More week 38 Recipe

Nice to be back in the groove again after missing 2 weeks challenges at Less is More, not that I'm complaining, Greek islands are very nice!!
Anyway this week the challenge is a really easy recipe which is simply



POLKA DOTS

As long as your design is Clean and Simple, has some white space (or its equivalent) and polka dots in evidence somewhere, it will be perfect for this challenge.



I have used a JS stamp, very retro, which I thought suited polka dots perfectly. I stamped onto white card using black Memento and again onto blue dotty paper. I then paper pieced the hat and dress and added a couple of pearls. I used PM's for the skin and hair and added a tiny piece of ribbon on the hat. 
I matted onto blue and white card and the sentiment is from my Xyron printer.
Check out Chrissie and Mandi's wonderful inspirations and join the rest of the Limettes every week on this wonderful challenge blog:)

My sister has just pointed out that my stamp is from Creative Expressions so apologies for misleading everyone:)

Wonderful card, really retro or modern, hard to decide everything comes around again in fashion. Love it in polka dots anyway:0) Hope you've warmed up a bit now, :0) Gay x

That's weird....... I've just been looking through my stamps and have come across exactly the same set of stamps - think you might find they are from Creative Expressions rather than Joanna Sheen?

Pauline said...
