For the Love of Dots

Well I have one more card to show you with this set. It honestly isn't my favorite, but my buddy Amy is going to redeem this post with a card of her own.

Now do you see the shinny dots? Well I think that's where this card went wrong. That's crystal effects, and I've been using it like crazy. However I forgot how on large areas it doesn't really look the best. It also warps your paper. Those are two bad combinations.

So not my favorite by any means, but that's to Amy, you've still got a pretty card to look at:

I love this card. It's so fun. That pattern is just the coolest. Check out Amy's blog for more details!

Both of these cards were made with For the Love of Dots! And many of you will be getting the set very soon! If you order Monday or Tuesday your orders are on their way!

Ahh don't beat yourself up over your card, it's lovely with a super fun colour combo! Glad I'm not the only one who gets carried away with dolloping GA on everything LOL!
Amy's card is super sweet too - I love that pattern she's created!

Thanks for showing your card anyway! The black twill really sets off the colors nicely, and thanks for the tip on not making the large dots shiny! Perhaps there is another way that could be done...oh, the challenge of it!

I like the pink/purple color scheme with the pops of green and black. Amy's card is great too!

Sorry that your card didn't work out quite the way you wanted Courtney but I'm glad you posted it anyway. I like all the different coloured dots and the outline on some of them (freehand?) I also like your punch of black.

Amy's card is great and I'm hoping over to her blog to let her know. Have a super day!!!
