Dots and buttons

This is my card for the following challenges
Lili of the Valley - Button it
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge - Use Polka Dots
Divas by design - Button up

The stamp I used for the card is Maisie Sitting Pretty by Lili of the Valley. I begun by stamping the image with a black Memento ink pad onto smooth white card. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I cut out the image and mounted it onto a panel of red card.

For the background I cut two squares - one of red card and the other from white card. On the white card I stamped red spots using Real Red ink pad and Polka Dot stamp both by Stampin' Up. I added these to a square card blank.

I die cut the red swirls using a Marianne Design Creatables die. The flower layers were cut using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Rose Creations die. I embossed the flower layers using a spotty Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I stamped the greeting frame with Real Red ink pad and punch it out. The stamp and punch I used is by Stampin' Up. I added a peel off greeting which I had coloured with a red pen.

To finish the card I added red and white dots and red buttons.
