Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 9

Hello again,

I'm back with another card for the MDUC - this particular week's theme was 'Spot the Dots' and I couldn't resist using this beautiful Stampin' Up! paper. It was from the Designer Series - Spring Fling set which has now been retired but I just love the pretty 'girly' colours and patterns in this set.

** Please excuse the lateness of this Post but I had been having trouble with my computer in the last week or so and have only now rectified the problem (well I hope I have anyway), so I am playing catch-up with my posting!

For this card I embossed the striped paper with my Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder, cut the pink polka dot paper with a wavy cutter and mounted the two pieces over the embossed panel.

I then punched out the circular motifs on the SU paper and attached them along the curved edge of the dotty paper. Using another embossing folder with Swirls, I embossed a Yellow Polka Dot
circle of paper to form the 'ball' which Tilda is sitting on.

A few flowers, a rub-on greeting and some lovely pink gems were added and then my water-coloured Tilda was perched on the ball to finish off this creation.

I hope you like it - I had a lot of fun making this card!
