Stripe of Dots

I saw this great card set on the blog justgivemestamps.   She did a great job on the card set but that is not what caught my eye.  It was the way she packaged up the card set ... I loved the strip of dots.  I'm not sure if hers was designer paper or not but I decided to use it as inspriation for a card!!

I used the relatively large circle in the Green Thumb set (Papertrey Ink) and Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Tempting Turquoise inks (Stampin' Up!).  Then I added a few strips of TT cardstock and a sentiment (Birthday Basics, PTI) in Chocolate Chip ink. 

My Secret Sister Banu sent me some Papertrey Ink twine when we were in a swap.  It is like gold to me (what she sent me is all I have) so I am surprised that I used so much on this one card!!  and the button is a PTI Dark Chocolate button from Banu too!  Isn't she so sweet to send me the best items!!!

A pretty CAS card but I love the final results!!  Thanks Laurie for the inspriation!!

Perfect CAS cards, Donelda, and how fun to show how different the cards look by reversing the colors! Both are stunning!!
