Simon Says Stamp Spots!!

Firstly we have some sad news at Simon Says Stamp challenge, the  lovely Dena has decided to step down from the Design team, we will miss both her and her fantastic creations, we wish her all the best and hopes she stays in touch.
This week the Simon Says Stamp challenge we are all going 'dotty' (some of us are already there) and would like to see spots and dots anywhere and everywhere.

We have the usual $25 (p&p paid) voucher from the generous Heidi to spend in store

Tilda is coloured with Copics, the edges of the image distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool, inked with Weathered Wood and coated with Stardust Stickles. The papers are from Tim Holtz's Vintage Shabby paper stack. I used the pink spotted piece and you can just make out the spots through the stamping. I stamped the borders with Prima marketing's Build a Frame. I then distressed and stickled the edges

The script is a Tim Holtz stamp, and I stamped the sentiment on a piece of velum, and forgot to photograph it.  The flowers are cut from a mixture of velum and the Tim Holtz papers and the leaves with a Woodware punch. I made the 'button' with a Spellbinder's heart die and used Inkessentials glossy accents on it. I am also entering this card into the Just Magnolia challenge who so conveniently ask for vintage this week.
You can buy all the lovely 'goodies' used to create this card at the Simon Says Store apart from from the ancient Woodware leaf stamp, the button and the lace.

Last time I used these stamps I was asked how I managed the corners, I saw this demonstrated on a video produced by Prima marketing but cannot find it anywhere so you'll just have to put up with me doing a demo on it. I have put it in the post below this one and have linked it HERE
