Going Dotty!

That's the theme this fortnight at Try it on Tuesdays - not me, although sometimes........   So anything goes with dots or circles on your creation.
I needed another 'girly card, so a great opportunity to use one of the Graphic 45 Ladies Diary stamps, which was stamped and  masked off, before I used a sequin waste mask for my 'dotty' background. I used  Worn Lipstick and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks, the ribbon also got the dotty treatment. My background for the base was made the same way.  Flowers are a Joy craft die.
The rest of my very talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration  so please pop over to the main blog to see, you wont be disappointed.
Just a short post as I am busy making paper cones to hold small sprigs of flowers to decorate the church isles -  DD is banned from looking at Pinterest from now on!

I am entering this at:
 Make it Monday - Anything Goes
 Cheerful Stamp Pad - Love your Hat
 Sweet Stampin - Glamour & Glitz
 Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with a Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a great week.
