Just Add Ink - Sketch Challenge # 214

Yippee, I did manage to sneak in a bit of crafting this afternoon, so have another card to post. I'm trying to do this quickly before we race off to Phoebe's gym class.
I discovered the Just Add Ink Challenge Blog yesterday on someone's blog. They seem to be based in Australia so its nice to enter a challenge closer to home. 

I had in my head which paper I was going to use for my card but after cutting it out it was completely wrong, so this is my 2nd attempt.
I don't think I've ever had so many spots on a card before! I found this paper and thought it would make a perfect birthday card for a child. I hand-cut the paper pieces and popped them on foam tape to give them some height. After stamping the sentiment in pink I gave it a whirl with my Wink of Stella. I then went CRAZY with my enamel dots. Spottilicious!!

The paper is from My Minds Eye 'Happy Day', the sentiment from CASual Fridays 'Shenanigans' and the enamel dots are from Papervine.

Phoebe has gym from 5.30pm to 6.30pm today. Its too far from home to drop her off, so Max and I hang around and he practices his amazing trampoline tricks. He is a future Cirque de Soleil star. Phoebe is a natural actress so she is a future moviestar. Imagine all the free tickets Dave and I will get in our old age!!!!!

Take care
