Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Spots and Dots

Morning Ladies, hope you are all ready for a lovely weekend, todays card is entered for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, and this week its "Spots and Dots" and is being sponsered by Phindy's Place, she is another creator of Digi stamps and is also a illustrator of childrens books. I would urge you to pop over to her Etys shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/phindysplace and see what gorgeous stamps she has to offer.
Ive printed my stamp onto white card and coloured it in my usual way, with my copic pens, then cut it out and run a blue pen around all the edges, I then printed a sentiment from my computer and did the same with this, and afterwards mounted them both onto a piece of blue pearlescent card.
The base card is my usual 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of green card with one of four spotty papers from my Nitwit downloads, it took me a time to find them as they were in all different folders, but felt these were the best I could find amoungst them. Ive mounted  the first a green and small dot onto this first layer, and the second a small blue Ive punched a square with my border and corner punches, and the third and fourth mounts are two more papers mounted onto different coloured mounts. The last mount is piece of dark blue card run through my cuttlebug with a circle embossing folder.
Then I mounted my stamped image in the centre with some foam and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
