Pretty Polka Dots

Today, while out on a general craft supply run, I found this mini "Pretties" kit at Dollarama. It has 30 fabric flowers and 15 rhinestone brads, for $1.00. I didn't bother to see if it came in any other colours (what was I thinking, right!). This one has white, some oranges, and pink. Anyway, I was inspired to use the flowers right away. I have a hard time using flowers as an embellishment on a card, but not as the focus. I stamped the Polka Dot Background on yellow and embossed it with white to really make those dots pop. Then I arranged my flowers just so, added a small greeting, and that was that. I figured I'd stage the photo, since the items in the kit work so well for that sort of thing.

Supplies:
Stamps: Polka Dot Background, Borders & Corners monogram ed.
Paper: White, Summer Sun
Ink: Only Orange, Whisper White
Accessories, etc.: White EP, orange grosgrain, "pretties" kit, pop-up glue dots
