CFC56: Create a Clean And Simple project using polka dots.

Polka dots rock!  Truly they do.

I am sure that I was born with some sort of  polka dot homing device! Whether it is fabric, clothing, paper, decorations....I'm drawn to them like a moth to a light bulb (actually I hate moths so let's change that to a fly to honey).  And, my dad actually played in a band called "The Polka Kings" when I was younger!

I was blog stalking some of my favorite designers when I came upon Lisa's sweet card  here.  Not a doubt in my mind at all.  I had to play along with this challenge.

I bought this SU stamp set quite a while ago (notice the polka dots on the mushrooms) but didn't really have an opportunity to use it prior to this.  I think that it is one of those stamps that borders the 'juvenile' age category...or maybe the 'hippie' era (we all know what they did with mushrooms !!!)

The mushrooms were stamped with black Stazon and then embossed with clear embossing powder (for a nice deep black color).  The sentiment is a rub-on (origin unknown).  Polka dot paper is also from origin unknown scrap pile.

Hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog here and check out the plethora of dotty creations posted by the amazing DT.  This is one of the busiest challenge sites around.  Tons of talent, tons of inspiration!

Happy crafting!


  1. Super adorable card! I love the mushrooms and this stamp set, and you were cracking me up with your hippie era, mushroom talk! :) Also see if your dad has any of his recordings for his, that would be fun! hehe!
