CFC109 - Polka Dots


A quick thank you card for this week's CASual Friday challenge, to use polka dots. And they left us a good reminder to watch the 'white' (or clear) space in our submissions. I have to agree that white space is probably the biggest factor in a design being CAS.

I still had my neon papers out and they look so good when they pop against a dark background, so I created this navy panel on my Silhouette and then used a circle punch to cut the neon dots to place in the negative cuts in the navy panel. I used Avery Elle's Fun with Letters Alphabet and popped them up on foam dots for a little dimension.

Awesome design--those neon letters really pop against the blue. And, how fun that your white space is blue! (are you a rebel in secret?)
