Oh those Polka Dots... 💖 
I love this set because Lisa made it easy for us to use this set with lots of techniques and styles!  

I thought I would do a large card with this set! 
It mesures 4 1/4" X 7 3/4" I used the jar from her Hello Beautiful     stamp set. Stamped it in Versa Mark on velum and heat embossed it with Fine Detail Embossing Powder. 
Colored the back with Copic Markers and fussy cut it out. 
Stamped the flowers and leaves, fussy cut those too. Stamped the polka dots twice. Arranged the flowers to get a idea where I wanted the greeting. Then stamped the greeting and cut some grass 
green card stock for stems then glued and 
popped up the flowers and leaves. 
I used Gina K. Designs:
