Polka dot Valentine

Yay!  A challenge I can enter this week.  I made an assortment of valentines to send out while spending 2 months on the gulf.  It will be hit or miss whether any of them will work for a challenge and today is a hit.  Celebrate the Occasion has issued an "Any Occasion - but must use polka dots" challenge.  I just hope it doesn't have to have a sentiment on the front because mine doesn't but it is a valentine card - it say's so inside.  lol

The pink polka dot paper came from a stack of dots from PTI and is mounted on a white card base with the bottom corners chomped.  I cut the scalloped heart and white shadow from Doodlecharms.  The lacy strip is from a MS punch, backed with a lavendar cardstock scrap.  The pink heart was dry embossed with a heart CB folder.  I used my tiny paper punch to punch holds in 7 of the scallops and then added lavendar stones in the holes.  I didn't like it with just the white showing through.  It needed something and that something was a little bling.

Our dulcimer group met for practice yesterday and it was really a workout.  I don't have a group back home to play with so this is so much fun.  I have two new songs to learn by next Monday.  I'd better get practicing.
