Dot Spot Birthdays

I'm finally starting to feel a bit crafty after a nice Spring Break vacation.  Last week was spent catching up on real life duties.  I should have more time this week for creating and commenting on blogs.  Anyhow, when my mojo is in a slump I usually CASE some projects that I've bookmarked for inspiration.  It helps the creative juices flow again.

Joy is having a challenge on her blog about honoring someone in the crafty world that inspires you, so this was the perfect time to play along.  Thanks for the push Joy!

I remembered that I loved this card from Dawn McVey using Dot Spot.  I really need to use that set more often.  It's so fun and versatile.  So I quickly chose some colors and recreated Dawn's card.  I used the same layout as her card -- just changed the colors and sentiment panels.










All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Dot Spot, Make a Wish additions (1st card sentiment panel), Birthday Basics (2nd card sentiment)
Paper:  White, Raspberry Fizz / New Leaf, Lemon Tart
Ink:  Raspberry Fizz, New Leaf, Sunflower (CTMH), black
