I have a bright, happy card to share with you tonight that I made with a couple of challenges in mind. The Verve Diva Dare is to use polka dots on your card, and the Mod Squad challenge is to use a tag.
I knew my Blomma pad from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store had polka dotted paper, so I pulled a couple of pieces of coordinating paper to help me choose the colors for my focal image. I wanted to try a technique that I had seen on a number of blogs lately, so, first, I stamped the Psalm 31:24 sentiment on a tag, and then I stamped a number of flowers from Surely Goodness as well as some sprigs from Better with You to decorate the edges. Then, using my scalloped rectangle die, I cut out the center of the stamped tag, and then I diecut five pieces of unstamped cardstock as well. I layered three of the unstamped scalloped rectangles and topped them with the stamped scalloped border, then I stacked the remaining two unstamped inner rounded rectangles before I added the stamped center. I love the dimension it gives the finished card!! I decorated my tag with dotted sheer ribbon, twine, and pearls.
Here are the items I used from Stamp Simply...
