CAS Polka Dots

Hi everyone!! I made a double challenge card tonight, for the CAS challenge on Splitcoast to make a Valentine and for the Crazy 4 Challenges, to use polka dots. When I saw the challenge on SCS, I thought of my Background Basics Hearts set and the sentiment from my Year Round Puns set. After I stamped the Background Basics I got the idea to crumple the paper and use my Vintage Touch inks to give an aged look. Then I thought I should distress around the papers. I made the main panel smaller because I didn't want to hide this great Tan Leather cardstock, it has such beautiful texture!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
