I finally got to use some MME Enamel dots yesterday.  Every time I went to place an order, the ones I wanted were sold out (or they were in stock but the coordinating paper was sold out).  I ordered from a different supplier this time around as I couldn’t wait any longer to get my hands on those dots!

They ARE fabulous!  A little pricey at $5 per pack but the colours are great and they’re a perfect accent on a card.

Funnily enough, I paired my first dots up with paper from a totally different line from MME.  The dots I used are from “Boy Crazy” and the paper is “Fly a Kite”.

I also dusted off some Whipper Snapper stamps and stamped up a bunch of images to use on my next handful of cards.  The above layout was CASEd from the fabulous Alice Wertz.  A freakin’ genius when it comes to patterned paper accents.  (she actually uses a LOT of washi these days but my supply isn’t that extensive so I just cut some paper on an angle to mimic the look)

The sentiment is Paper Smooches – I was going to go with a Happy Birthday sentiment but I saw this on my desk and couldn’t resist.  I also wanted to use another dot next to the sentiment but I made the card a little top-heavy.  Next time I’ll place the sentiment at the bottom left and stick another dot right there!
