Me & The Polka Dot Person

(This is my second post for today, so please scrol down if you want to see more)

This Polka Dot Person stamp from Hero Arts was given to me to challenge me!  Well, it's not going to get the better of me!  So it sits in my craft room where I can see it every day.  And once again, I have been staring at it, incessantly, because I knew I needed to do something with it for the March Contest over at Hero Arts!

The March contest is to produce something with either a Birthday theme, or stamped envelopes or the layered background technique, alone or together, however you want.

So, Mrs. Polka Dots is going to a birthday and cannot go empty handed.  I apologise up front, but the hands had to come off and then be put back on again an angle!

Paper: PTI, Neenah Solar White, W&M (pp from South Africa)
Ink: Baby Pink Dye Ink (CTMH), Memento Tuxedo Black, Spun Sugar Distress Ink, Copics, Spica Glitter pen
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Dimensional dots, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestabilitie Die

It's a simple design.  I just needed to get a bit creative with Mrs. Polka Dot!  I also used the tiny cup cake in one of the Hero Arts birthday sentiment sets and popped that up in her hands to take to the party!

Ok, ok, I was feeling silly, again!  Enjoy!
