Ok, on to the card!! I started with some gold and white polka-dot pattern paper. I stamped the Thank sentiment, then cut out each letter. Next i stamped the U sentiment on white card stock and used some gold Smooches to color in the U.

Next i used some mint ink and pressed the pad into some white card stock. When i had colored enough of the card stock with the ink, i cut it out with a Simon Says Stamp circle die. This die has one big circle along with lots of tiny dots in a couple different sizes. I cut this die twice.

I found a dark grey card base and just placed my sentiment letters on it. Then i sprinkled lots of the die dots, some i had to turn over, moved some around, added some here and there. Then i glued down each dot (this took a bit of time, but i think it was worth it!!). When the dots where all glued down, i adhered the sentiment letters with foam tape.
