Thank you #2

I love using polka dots and stripes together and I thought this was a perfect combination for this quick card. I have to start working on taxes now, so quick cards it will be for a while.

I CASED the card from Sharon Johnson at No Time To Stamp. Be sure and take a look at her cards. By the way, this link just takes you to the card I CASED. Once you have seen the cards, click on HOME and it will take you to her current cards.

I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 white top folding card stock. The stripe is cut at 2.5 inches and the polka dot is 3 inches. I cut a strip of the striped paper going the opposition direction at 1.5 inches and used my Martha Stewart punch on it.

I stamped the bird with Not Quite Navy and then used the Spellbinders Circle die to cut and emboss it. It is popped up with a dimensional for added interest. I also added a small navy pearl.
