Going Dotty!

This card is for Caardvarks blog challenge......

THE CHALLENGE

Create a **NEW** card which incorporates the colors of our sponsor's logo (myStampBox) - black, white, and hot pink!



I just love this colour combination! I went for a dotty design with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing on the black card, black and white polka dot organza ribbon, the Fiskars Water Threading punch border and a couple of rhinestones on the side border.

I painted the chipboard numbers with Jo Sonya's Magenta acrylic paint and topped it with Royal Coat when it dried to give it a glossy finish. Added some Nestability shapes, a metal key, some hot pink flowers and a vintage button. The wavy stamped greeting is from a Hero Arts set.

Not much stamping here, but I think it looks pretty cool! What do you think?
