Polka Dot Paradise Color Challenge { X2 }

Hey everybody! Well, I want to start off saying Thank You for the great response on the new Challenge! I hope that ya'll can join us for some fun! Maybe even make a card during the World Card Making Day this weekend for the challenge! Do ya'll have plans for that day? Well we have football games at 8 & 10 that morning, but after that, me and Autumn (my daughter) will be making cards all day! :) YEAH! I have a whole list of cards I want to make that day! It should be fun! :)
Well I was finally able to participate in the Challenge over at Embellish Magazine! I LOVED these colors and I love polka dots, so I was excited to finally play! Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with colors myself, so when someone gives me the colors, it is alot easier for me! :) I couldn't stop with one card, so I made two! The first one was a So Sorry card, we own a business and I do the paper work, and Yes, I make mistakes! I thought the customer didn't pay yet, so they were contacted, then after going through paper work, they did pay! So, we sent this card for our apologies and sent a gift card to Subway, we figured they could have lunch on us! :) Then, the next card, I am going to send it to my Paw Paw & Mee Mee (Grandparents), for Thanksgiving! :) So, here's the cards!

Great cards! I love the large scallops on the first one (I recently started to love mine, too! :) ) and the layers on the second.

These cards are lovely, Winter!! I can't decide which one I like best. The big red bow on the first card is super cute and the jumbo polka dots and stitching on the other make it scrumptious ;)

These are adorable!!! I love the second one, something about the repitition in the pattern but in different colors. It's wabi-sabi! (perfection in simplicity).
