Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring Birdie Brown's "Retro Girl 02"

Happy Tuesday Blogger Friends!  Hope you're all having a great week!  It's time for another Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge and this week a fun challenge...."Polka Dots"!!!

Our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge is Birdie Brown!!!

Here is my card...

I had so much fun creating with this adorable image by Birdie Brown called "Retro Girl 02"!  I have all 3 Retro girl digis and all of them are so cute!!! For this cute gal, I colored her up using my  Copic sketch markers except for her cute polka dot dress which I paper pieced.  The papers I used for her dress and for the layered "Lacey Oval"  Spellbinders behind her are called Beautiful Life by Echo Park. I edged my papers with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet.  Not sure if you can see it but I also added some Ranger stickles in "Diamond" to her little purse, her earrings and shoes to add some more shimmer.  For the background, I used my cuttlebug embossing folder in "Polka Dots" for the background.  It was fun to break out with some embossing which I don't often do. The sentiment "Hello Friend" is from a stamp set I have in my stash and I stamped this onto some more DP with my memento ink in Black Tuxedo.  I added some flowers and a cute bow I made from the last of some some light blue polka dot ribbon. I thought it was a cute touch for this theme! :)  Finally, I added some blue Kaiser Kraft rhinestones to the corners of my card.

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.  I'd love to see your polka dot projects! :)
