OWH Sketch Challenge #212

Here is my take on this sketch. Simple and fun! I made the background dots with the MFT graduated dots stencil and clear embossing powder. I wanted white dots but grabbed the wrong container of embossing powder. I think it came out fine, with the tone on tone look.

Paper: GinaK White, Black and Blue, Stampin Up Whisper White
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Bannerific, MFT Typewriter Alphabet
Stencil: MFT Graduated Dots
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Copic Marikers, Misc. Twine

Thank you for looking and have a Blessed Day!


  1. In today's world of abbreviated words, this card is perfection! I love the big polka dots too!

  2. Thanks Carol! I am not a big fan of the abbreviated words but have been seeing it on cards lately, so I decided to join the band wagon.

  3. Great card, I love your "mistake" with the embossing powder. I think better than white. The blue does add a tone on tone, without distracting from the sentiment banners! Nice addition with the twine too!

  4. What a lovely accident! Love how the polka dots came out and the sentiment on the banners is just too cute! Adorable card!

  5. I agree, the tone on tone polka dots are perfect even if they weren't what you intended ! Cute card !

  6. I also love the clear embossed polka dots. I may even have to try that sometime. Your sentiment is so fun and perfect for this sketch. Great job!

  7. Love how you the twine and the stitching on the top of your banners blended together. Great job!!!

  8. Love your happy mistake. Love the tone on tone.
