OLW52 - Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - A Polka Dotted Hullabaloo

Today's card brings together two of my favorite challenges - the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger challenge and Simplicity's One Layer Wednesday challenge!!  Look how well they play together -
Can you believe the fabric that Cath picked out for the Trigger Challenge?   I mimicked the colors and the circles but varied the sizes.  The One Layer Wednesday challenge is called Round and Round and is to use a circle or multiple circles on your card -
Today's TIP - Have you ever had a cling stamp so tiny that it swam around on your acrylic block?  I dug out my Tim Holtz' Fragments and mounted a couple of my stamps on them - easy peasy and a quick solution!!
This card is long and skinny - (3" x 6") - perfect for a stack of colorful circles and a snazzy sentiment from A Muse|Studio!!  Stamp sets used are Lots of Dots and Let's Chat.  Inks are Papaya, Cranberry, Slate and Sky.
Guess what? - It is MAY - The sun is shining (finally) and the flowers are blooming and even though many county schools are out due to flooding I am in a mood to celebrate some Spring!!  I will happily send the first three people who place a $50+ order to my online shop a free catalog!!  WHOO HOO!!  I love sitting outside on my swing perusing my A Muse|Studio catalog and you will too!!

I need to find me some of those small acrylic blocks. How helpful that would have been for me on this challenge! Live that you staggered the circle sizes, and I like the unusual size of the card. Well done!!

I like your color choices, especially the slate. One of my favorite A|S ink colors.
