Dotty Heart

A very good evening to all my lovely friends and followers, I hope this finds you all well.
I have been having a busy time of it lately and haven't spent as much time as I would like on my crafting-there just always seems to be so much else to do. Twice the other evening I had just sat down at my table to start some crafting and then one or the other of the family wanted me for something else-I just gave up in the end!!
I'm hoping that I can find myself some time during the holidays next week but between visiting, shopping trips, dog sitting and the regular housework jobs my week is already filling up!
My card today is a little different from my  usual style and isn't something I do so often but I bought this stamp set in Hobbycraft and felt it might look nice with a more CAS style.
I stamped straight onto some Lili of the Valley papers and cut out the heart then decoupaged the ribbon with plain white card. I layered the image on a scalloped circle with a faux nestie and then layered it with the same paper and all I added was a little pink button. As I said, not my usual style but I think I'm quite pleased with how it turned out:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of your week and until next time.
