A Lot of Dots

A little beach-y card today!  I'm not sure who makes this cute stamp (if you have any idea, please let me know) as it was given to me quite a while back and there's no name on the wooden block.  I love this little gals hair - sorta looks like mine on some days. 
  
The blue polka dot DP is some that's now retired from SU and the yellow gingham strips just appeared in all my papers from somewhere.  I embossed the white with the Spots and Dots folder and added some Glossy Accents to the dots on the little dragon floaty.   The ribbon - ah, I've been looking forever for some yellow gingham type ribbon and just couldn't find any - so Carol  (Our Little Inspirations) was so nice and sent me some!  Thanks again, Carol.






I followed the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches and will enter it their challenge.  I'll also enter it in the challenge at Top Tip Tuesday (It's all about Circles).

Thanks for stopping by...........

Very cute and summery - did you feel as though you were going round in circles by the end of it ? ;-) The gingham was a great foil to the circles.

This is perfect, some of what we have been doing, fun in the pool, but I don't have a fun float like her. Love the colors and of course your coloring. Loving that perfect bow.
