Spots and Dots

Hi again! A few challenges have inspired my card today but the main design comes from the gorgeous case study card by the very talented Shari Carroll - I love the way she can group little elements together and made her cards look amazing.

My card is a fairly simple design but it has been going round on my desk for a few days...with a bit of playing around it finally came together once I decided to do an embossed background to add a bit more interest.

Thanks for coming by my blog today xx
