Dotty for Birthdays

Howdy, folks! This morning I am sharing a polka-dotty birthday card for your viewing pleasure.


It features the latest DeNami Product Spotlight stamp, the cling-style Scallop Circle.


So sweet, right? I think you will find this to be an ultra versatile stamp. For more ideas on how to use it, be sure to visit the DeNami blog today where the entire design team is sharing some awesome scallop circle inspiration. This stamp is on sale in the DeNami store this week, too!!

To complete this card, I reached for DeNami's Birthday Celebration cling stamp set, Thoughtful Greetings stamp set, Iridescent aquamarine cardstock, and some baker's twine. The patterned paper is from an old 6 x 6 paper pad from My Minds Eye, and the red grosgrain ribbon was salvaged from a Christmas present.

I was inspired by my blog friend Jessi, who is on the design team for the Shopping Our Stash Challenge, to play along with the new SOS Challenge #89: They Say It's Your Birthday. This is my first time playing with Shopping Our Stash, although I've loved the concept ever since I first started seeing Jessi play over there! I dug deep into my stash for the patterned paper and aquamarine cardstock that I used for this creation, plus the bakers twine has been around for longer than I care to remember ;-).

Thanks for sharing a little slice of paper bliss with me today!
