Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

This months blog hop is all about polka dots. And I do really love polka dots, but wanted to do something different, and this really was different for me! Using all Papertrey Ink colors, I punched circles using my 3/8 in. circle punch. I arranged them (for days) and came up with this!


Of course polka dots are happy and remind me of birthdays so the sentiment I chose for the card is from Birthday Basics. I used my SU! scalloped edge punch for the tag and added some twine. I tied a few knots in it and frayed the ends to help it stand out. I like how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the Papertrey Ink Forum to see other fabulous polka dot cards from other blog hoppers!
