Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 102 - 'Lots of Dots'

Well after the excitement of my new purchases I decided to get cracking at making a card only to discover I had run out of double sided sticky tape and my tape roller was running out. So ensued a mad dash to the local craft shop to stock up on the supplies while there I also purchased some more paper (Im learning can never have too much) and picked up some polka dotted paper (it was new in)

Once home and settled back at the workbench (after having to move some of mine and boyfriends model kits from it) After a quick check on the blogs I discovered the Penny Black Saturday Challenge so thought I would have a play with the new items and see what I could come up with.

The result:

Im really pleased with it especially as it is only the 5th card I have made to date. (The white paper around the outside is a piece of backing paper not part of the card ;0) )

Items used
