Modern Sugar Blvd Challenge #16

This week was a fun challenge ~ Polka Dots ~ and who doesn't love Polka Dots?

I decided to use some textured cardstock with a white core, emboss it and then sand it so the white showed through. I really love how this looks, and don't know why I don't do it more often (well, actually it's probably because I generally use SU cardstock and it doesn't have the white core). To carry on the polka dot theme, I added dots to the scalloped circle as well as along the outside of the card and then finished it off with some polka dot organdy ribbon.

Stop on by the Modern Sugar Blvd blog to take a peek at more wonderful creations by the Sugars and join us in this weeks challenge.

As you may have noticed, I skipped a week on the MSB challenges. The Sugars have been split up into two groups and while there is still a challenge every week, we are doing them on alternating weeks

This card is also for the following challenges:

Double Dutch : Pink, Brown, Cream (I'm hoping the kraft color can count as cream since that's the closest I can get right now)
Creative Inspirations - Spots, Dots, and Circles
Pollycraft - Favorite Things - I love polka dots, flowers, ribbon and the colors brown and pink together
