House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge - Circles and Polka Dots

Now that we are half way through May HM&FMC have another fantastic challenge again this week - Circles and Polka Dots. I am a Guest DT member for May and this is my card.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut my circular card and the layers to make my circle easel card. The backing paper is from Lime Tree Crafts. The cloud effect layer I made using a mask and a distress ink pad. I then spritzed it with a mica spray for a little sparkle. The button border is a punch by EK Success. The scissors are a brad that I bought (along with other tools) from Joanna Sheen.

I hope you enjoy the challenge and look forward to visiting your blogs.
