Polka Dot Showers

Today I am sharing the card I made for the Casual Mid-Week Challenge over on the Papertrey Ink Forum. The challenge this week was an inspiration challenge.

This picture was the picture for our inspiration. Here is the LINK.
After I saw this I knew immediately that I wanted to reach for one of my favorite PTI sets, Polka Dot Basics.

Here is the card I created. I don't love the card as a whole...but I am totally digging the background I created. It was time consuming to color, but I just love the end result.

STAMPS: Scattered Showers, Polka Dot Basics, Mixed Messages (PTI)

PAPER: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip (SU), Select White (PTI)

INK: Palette Noir, Chocolate Chip, Pirouette Pink (SU)

OTHER: Copics, Rose Ribbon (SU)
