Pink Petticoat Comp - Lots of Dots (2)

Wasn't totally happy with the lion card so had a go at another one. For some unknown reason, I wanted to try something new and used acetate for the base card. Printed out loads of dotty paper so that I could cover everything from the back seeing as the DST would show. More work than I thought but well worth it. Had a few mis-haps with this one which meant changing the design a bit (for the better in my opinion). Really liked the snail image from the Garden Bugs set but hadn't used it before. My favourite part are the dots on the bottom right. I cut them from the backing paper with the smallest circle nestie which left a small opposite colour border.

What a great competition card, will be a shame for you to part with it! Lovely colour green and like the way you have alternated the dots. Two tone base dots are a great idea.Well done. xx
