PseudoDots


Doesn't it look dotty? Really, it's just the ribbon doing it! I sliced the edges of every other block on the Papertrey paper from the Holiday set, then wove the Swiss Dots Ripe Avocado and Pure Poppy ribbons through. The little dots on the sentiment (from the Believe set) are done with Perfect Pearls Ruby Red.
To get as much ribbon and dots as I could, I had to go with a biggo card- finished sixe is almost 7.5 x 6.25. it would only have cost me $89.00 to mail, but since I put a bow on it, well now it will probably cost me $89.99.
