An Early 132!

Well, I was going to wait until Friday to post this, but I just finished my card and I wanted to share it right away. You know that mentality, right?
Here's the sketch.
You may recognize it if you have similar inspiration files to me-I really love this card by Maile Belles and I also can't wait to get my hands on her new stamp set, Modern Basics. In the mean time, I figured I'd use one of my modern style favorites, Dot Spot, to make a similar look. I also am posting early so I can enter my card into Heather's Totally Hues Challenge #3 before the deadline! The colours to use are Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Orange Zest, and Summer Sunrise. I found them just perfect for this blustery, snowy day!
Onto the card!
Supplies (all supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted):
  • Stamps: Dot Spot, Inside and Out: Birthday, Green Thumb
  • Ink: Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist
  • Paper: Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, White
  • Accessories, etc,: Clear Embossing Powder (gel-a-tins), Orange Ribbon (Dunwoody Booth), Rhinestones (Dollarama)
As always, if you play along, feel free to leave a link to your post!
