Polka Dot Holiday

I tackled two challenges with this card.  One is the Less is More Challenge Week 38 - Polka Dots and the other is a new challenge I just discovered, Fetch A Sketch Challenge 9.  The sketch was a great looking clean sketch and I went with that exactly.

The card base is Very Vanilla card stock.  All four corners were rounded with the corner punch.  I heat embossed the polka dot frame from the Four Frames stamp set with VersaMark, Garden Green ink and clear embossing powder.  It was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Tags til Christmas stamp set with VersaMark, Real Red ink and clear embossing powder.  I punched out the sentiment with the Large Oval Punch and attached it to the frame with dimensionals.  I rounded the corners of a strip of Real Red card stock and Holly Berry Bouquet designer paper and attached them to the card front.  I then attached the sentiment layer.  Three circles of Real Red card stock were punched out with the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I added three rhinestones that were colored with a permanent marker and these were added to the card with glue dots.  A very easy card to put together and another Christmas card to add to my stash.  Thanks for visiting.  See you soon.
