I'm a bit dotty!!!

Okay getting good at the stupid titles over here:0) Welcome everyone, lovely to see you, I'm feeling a bit  better ( I think! LOL ) I hope all is well with you:0) I couldn't take part in last week's challenge ( sorry Chrissy and Mandi) so I'm really happy to be able to this week.
The challenge at Less is More this week is to have polka dots on your card, yup I can handle that!
Don't know how much longer I'm going to be able to take photos outside, the sun is so low now. This shot was taken at 11am this morning and the sun's disappearing from the garden and going behind the house.
My stamp is by Stampotique and called 'Chilly' bbrrrr!! Sentiment from Whimsy Stamps and polka circles by Artemio. I hope you like!
Oh! I forgot to say the young lady's clothes are paper pieced with some fabulous wrapping paper, it's also the ribbon on the side and has lime green on one side and fuscia on the other. It was given to me by a lovely friend.

It's grey and raining here right now and there is no sun to be had. And it's cold too! Chilly Brrrrr is right! Your card is just lovely Gay and you've done a great job paper piecing her coat. I love how you've added the polka dots it's an awesome take on the challenge. Good Luck!

I agree with Jenny that coat is far too short to keep her bum warm !! but then again she is most probably a teenager. Great card stamping, masking, coloring all perfect.
