Any colour + polka dots...& polka dot party

I seem to be much more organised this week and have managed to create a card for this week's Passion for Promarker's Challenge and My Time to Craft Challenge (first go!). I was unable to enter last week's Promarker challenge as I didn't have sandstone but loved this week's theme on both the blogs- polka dots! Even though I'd made a card with polka dots on it yesterday I decided to make a new card with different colours. As you can tell, I am loving my Anya ballerina, the black lace and doily punch - I have so many yummy products to use it's difficult deciding what to use! I chose purple and black and after finding some polka dot paper and then had  a rummage through my stash to see what looked good with what. Here's what I came up with...

A close up of the gorgeous Anya - probably a bit unconventional to colour her hair black and purple but it's good to be different sometimes...

I used Papermania adhesive gems to make her eyes 3-D...

The Happy Birthday sentiment was off a mini pack of stamps I picked up in Hobbycraft for 99p. I've threaded some ribbon all the way through the tag...

Close up of that gorgeous LLB black lace trim - I've added some purple gems to the centres...


Polka Dot paper and plain cardstock from stash
Punch used was Martha Stewart Doily Punch
Tag is from Making Memories with ribbon from Hobbycraft
Black lace is from LLB
Gems are from Papermania (black, blue, purple)
Purple handmade paper is from DCWV Mat Stack
Anya Ballerina stamped using Memento ink and coloured in with Promarkers - Amethyst, Aubergine, Lavender, Black, Silver, Ivory, Vanilla & Blush

Hope you like it!
