Less is More wk #38 Polka Dots

Good afternoon all!.
Well my plan to change my hours at work to give me more free time seems to have backfired on me. All was going so well until thursday when my son, who is still off work with his bad leg and bored silly, decided that seeing as I had a free afternoon,would visit me. All very nice and I love to see him but then he wanted his old pc tower bringing down from the loft so he could put all his music from there onto disc. Ofcourse that meant he had to borrow my screen and speakers which meant me taking it all apart and carrying it down because he can`t get up the ladders with his leg brace on. This also meant that I couldn`t get onto my PC to download piccies. On top of that he brought a bag load of washing for me to do because his in laws was out of action. It`s a good job I love him to bits.
Then on friday one of the afternoon staff rang in sick so I was asked to work a double shift.I must admit the money will come in very handy but, golly was I tired? Eight hours of standing in the same position is not good for my back lol.
So, after a slow start and the rebuilding of my PC I finally got around to making a card for this weeks
Less is More Challenge which is to use Polka Dots.
I love polkadots so it wasn`t really a challenge for me. I did finish it last night but then wasn`t happy with my flower so I`ve had to change it this morning which is why I`m so late posting.

Really simple card. 5x5 white card base. The dotty DP is Pinkpetticoat matted onto bright pink card and punched along the bottom.
The leaf die is by Marrianne designs in black card.
The flower is bright pink card, cut out with nestie scallop circle die then run through the corrugater a few times to weaken it and seperated into 2 pieces, then embossed with the swiss dots folder. All held together with a brad. I didn`t have a black brad so I coloured a pink one with a permanant marker.
The sentiment is by Layers of Colour stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.
And there you have it.
It`s flippin` freezing in the loft today so I`m off for a coffee and a warm up. Catch up with you all soon.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
