Polka Dot Birthday

Hi friends!  I can't believe it's already Thursday.  I've been wanting to play with this week's Mojo Monday 250 sketch since I designed it several weeks back and life has just been so busy that it didn't happen until last night.
 

I've been admiring white on kraft lately, so I decided to play around with a white, black & kraft color combo.  The flowers are from the Kind Words set and are embossed in white several times.  I did a little spotlight stamping on a smaller circle and lined it up on dimensionals to match the original image.  The sentiment is from an oldie but goodie set that we recently brought back from retirement... Wonderful Wishes.  The polka dot background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, then I swiped a white dye ink pad over it and did a little doodling around the edges.  I accented things with some teardrop rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty and a couple types of polka dot ribbon.  A girl can never have too many polka dots, right?

Well, that's the scoop on the card.  Along with being this week's Mojo Monday sketch, it's also for Verve's July Diva Dare.  Yep, that's right, it's Diva Dare time over on the Verve Blog and our challenge is an easy one... create a birthday card or project!  And if you don't know anyone with a birthday coming up, I just happen to know a few someone's born in July!  Head on over to the Day 1 post for all the details, then check out the delicious daily birthday inspiration from the Divas.  You just might win a little Verve, so hop to it!  {grin}
