Going dotty...

After a hectic week it is good to get back in the craft room and switch off. And what better way than to join in this week's challenge over at Less Is More which is called "Circles"

I've gone for a really bright card using an old Hero Arts set of stamps called Box of Dots. It's unusual for me to use such bright colours but I was inspired by this gorgeous two tone ribbon from Craftsulove.

I've mixed up 2 sets of Papertrey sentiments, stamping one on to vellum to add a bit of interest but also sticking to the CAS look.

Well I'm hoping to get a bit more crafting done as I'm off work for a week. Trouble is I've come down with a cold, I swear these viruses know when I'm going to be off. But I won't let it stop me and intend to cram as much in as possible!
