My first impressions from the inspiration graphic were the beautiful, bright colors and the polka dots. The polka dot dishes made me think of my favorite cafe creme cup, which is black with white polka dots all over, so I knew I was going to pull in some black accents and a whole lotta dots. And what goes better with dots than a sentiment about confetti?
I cut all my papers first, pulling the pink and yellow from the Sending Sunshine pad from Echo Park and the aqua paper from a Lawn Fawn pad, then matting with black, offsetting on the circles for a bit of a fun confetti look, and adding more dotty accents with a white gel pen. The flower and sentiment are both from the Kindness Matters stamp set and I fussy cut the flowers, adding a pearl brad to the center. I added rhinestone star clusters in place of the pennant on the sketch, then layered everything together into one happy little card.
