1. I love the Polka Dot Punches stamp set! When I first saw it in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, I wasn't really blown away by it, but now that I've had a chance to finally play with it, I love it! It's so easy to use because it coordinates with our punches and I love the swirly patterns. Don't know what I was thinking before.
2. I can't live without my paper trimmer. I had to make this card without it, because I didn't have it for a couple of days, and the simplest cutting of paper turned into a nightmare! I tried using an old guillotine (dodgy and not sharp) and then I had to resort to using scissors. Scissors! I'm sure I failed scissor work in Primary School because I could never cut straight.
So the moral of the story: having the right tool for the job makes it so much quicker and less frustrating.
Now onto the card... I like the concept but I think it's missing something still. The colours are Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Lavender Lace and Gable Green. I like that it's bright, but something about the composition isn't quite working for me. But that's okay, 'cause it just gives me a reason to try out my Polka Dot Punches stamp set again!
