Rainy Polka-Dot Day

Grr - this one just did not want to be photographed! IRL, the flower is a deeper, more reddish pink that matches the polka dot paper, and the green is a little less in-your-face. Just trust me when I say this card is much cuter in person. : ) To make the ruffled "ribbon," I crumpled up a strip of lightweight paper until it was soft and pliable, put a piece of double-sided tape across the embossed cardstock, and attached the crumpled paper strip, wrapping the paper around the handle of my paper piercing tool to form the three loops on the left. By the way, see those embossed polka dots? That's the new Cuttlebug folder that just came out. I think it's going to be a new favorite!

I was thinking about going to Ikea today, but it's raining, which means "nearly impossible to find a cab" weather, so I think I'll wait. I hope I don't have to put it off too long - their yummy dark chocolate and almond cake is calling my name!
