Say it with...Polka Dots

Hello and welcome to the AnnaBelle Weekly Challenge.
This week our theme is: Say it with...Polka Dots! - Who doesn't love Polka Dots. They are just so much fun.

Want to see how I used Polka Dots for the theme...(Yep your just biting your nails in anticipation of something good)

Okay here it is:

For this card I started with the adorable "Lil Monster" stamp set. I just think he's so cute and so much fun to use.
I colored him with Copic Markers
and cut him out. I'm actually pleased with the Copic coloring on this card. Next I stamped the Polka Dot background (Backgrounds By Design 1)with a Versa Mark ink pad on Green textured cardstock. Then I added the Polka Dot DP (DCWV) and a punched border, (Optic Dot-Marthat Stewart) I mounted this on Whisper White Card Stock and then again on Bashful Blue cs. Next I stamped the sentiment with Brilliant Blue ink and tied on some Polka Dot ribbon (American Crafts). To finish off the dotted theme I added 3 Olive Sprinkles. The Card base is Not Quite Navy-SU
Oh I almost forgot that I paper pieced the shirt with a bright orange polka dot pattern to add some contrast. Source Unknown as the card stock was a gift.

Now please check out what the other DT members have created using this theme and then give it a try yourself.
