Polka Dots

Over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog the challenge this week is to create a project using polka dots.

 I'm not 100% happy with this particular card, and the fact that it's a sympathy card didn't help. :( My Aunt Mary Sue's best friend past away from cancer this weekend and the funeral is next weekend so I am sending a card with my Mom because the funeral is out of town and I cannot attend. :(

Anyhoo, here is my take...
 I was trying a new-to-me technique with my PTI Mini Mendhi Medallion stamp set. I took one of the smaller stamps and stamped a strip alternating colors.
 PTI Products: Smokey Shadow and Fine Linen patterned papers, Mini Mendhi Medallion stamps set. The sentiment is Inkadinkado and the bling is The Paper Studio. The edge punch is Martha Stewart Deco Fan.
Thanks for looking. I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment if you wish. :)
