CAS04 & TECC58

I created this card for this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. You can find a copy of the sketch by clicking here. I wanted to go for a retro feel when I was putting this together, and am pretty happy with the way it turned out. It would've been sooooo much easier if I had a 1" square punch, but alas, me and my handy dandy paper trimmer got them all cut down to size. :)

Base layers: Chocolate Chip (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), Polka Dot Parade (4 1/8" x 5 3/8")

Main image background: Ocean Tides (3 3/4" square), Bitty Dots (3 1/2" square)
Image: 1" squares

This card was created for this week's Clean & Simple
Challenge on SCS. The challenge this week was to use "dots" without using dotted patterned paper. I really struggled with this card (CAS are soooo hard for me... I always want to add more, more, more! LOL) ... I must've hemmed and hawed a million times before finally just throwing my hands up in the air! Bow, no bow? Green sentiment, blue sentiment? Blue bird image, green bird image? LOL, I'm so indecisive... no wonder it takes me forever to complete a card! :P
