Dots of Hello!

Clever post title, huh?  Well, maybe not.  But that's the best I could come up with!

This has been such a busy week and today was no exception.  After my workout this morning, I hurried to get ready to head out.  My hubby and I accomplished a lot today, though.  And the weather was unusually warm for this time of year, so it was a great day to be out and about.  We even had sunshine.  Gasp!  Yes, I'm whining about the gray winter weather here in the Midwest. :)

Ok, let's get back to paper crafting.  I'm playing along with the ColourQ #273 challenge today.  Here's a look at the challenge colors.

I chose not to use the Christmas theme, but only the colors.  Here is what I created.

If you follow my blog, you may remember THIS card that I created several weeks ago, using this same technique.  It was all inspired by a coffee mug I saw on Pinterest HERE.

I used one tiny dot stamp to create this "hello".  After die cutting the word from a piece of copy paper, I used temporary adhesive to attach the mask to my card panel.  After that it was just lots and lots and lots of stamping, using the challenge colors.  That may seem monotonous, but it really wasn't.  I loved it.  The best part of the process was lifting the hello mask off of the panel to see the results!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
