I started out wanting to create a card using the fabulous, bold, black and white polka dot in our inspiration pic but I got distracted by a new Authentique paper pad sitting on my desk. I just love the yellows, greys, black and white color combos of these papers! The sun's rays are stamped with the  PTI Hello Sunshine set and the sentiment is from the PTI  Lovely Leaves set.

The day I made this I had spent several hours crafting with a friend. She has been helping me with some quilts I've been making this summer and I have been making cards for her in return. We don't often get to spend so much time together, but this summer has been an exception! The sentiment fit the design of the card and my feelings too. 

Come on over and see some of the other fabulous creations by the talented design team at DYSU. Then link us up to your polka dot creation!
