Small Dotty Delight

Today's card uses the smaller images in Papertrey's Dot Spot set. Bouncy dots make me happy, so they are perfect for a happy birthday card!

The color combination comes from this pin on my Color My World Pinterest board. I considered outlining the raised panel and/or adding bling, but decided to keep things super clean. I love the fresh, happy feel created by the saffron, vibrant fuchsia, soft lilac, and plum colors. Your eye can't really settle anywhere, which is exactly what I was going for.

Delightful fun!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Our weather in southwest Ohio went from 75 on Friday to 37 on Saturday. Weird.

We in the States are getting ready for Thanksgiving this Thursday, and I'm getting ready to mail my Thanksgiving Crusade cards.

The Thanksgiving Crusade Challenge will be over at the end of November, and there will be a random prize awarded to one participant. There are only 15 entries so far (and three of them are mine!), so be sure to link up your new-this-year thank-you or Thanksgiving cards to have your chance to win. Multiple entries are allowed!
