Hanna Stamps - Friday Challenge

I made this card for Sandra's challenge (HSC65) in the Hanna Stamps forum today on SCS. Her challenge:

Since its April I thought we’d have a challenge with a play on the old saying ‘April Showers Bring May Flowers’! Create a card or project using polka dots (the ‘rain’) and flowers. Who doesn’t love polka dots!?! You can use prima flowers or flower designer paper or even a flower card using polka dot paper! Just use them both!

Polka dots and flowers happen to be two of my favorite stamping things. I love how polka dots can work with both masculine and feminine cards as well as cards for children, it all just depends on size, shape, etc. I know Valentines Day is past . . . but this card is a Valentine . . . apparently I am feeling loving right now. *blushes* Layout for this card came from the CARD POSITIONING SYSTEMS blog. Hope you are having a wonderful day! I will try and get back on here a little later to show you the card I made for my color challenge I issued yesterday. Until then . . .

Stamps: Paper Dolls Hanna (Hanna Stamps), Handwritten Notes (Papertrey Ink) Paper: Regal Rose (SU!), Bon Bon Swiss Dot (Doodlebug Inc.), Bittersweet - Vanilla Fudge (Basic Grey), Very vanilla (SU!) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: Sweet & Sassy Cinderella Paper Flowers (Prima Marketing Inc), Pearl rhinestone stickers (Michaels Stores Inc.), Sewing machine (Singer), brown thread (Sulky), clear embossing powder (SU!), copic ciao markers (Imagination International Inc.)
