Dotty birthday card

Hello there, this is my first entry into challenges so it's fingers crossed that I get it right :-) !

I started with a 7x7 black card blank folded tent style, on to that I matted and layered white card, then black and white polka dot card. I took a piece of square red card and matted and layered that onto black card before embossing it using the Tattered Lace Ditzy Dots embossing folder. I'd found and a few dotty tag toppers in my black and white stash so attached a big and small one with a black brad and stuck that on to the the red square, I decided to put the topper on in a diamond shape as the size of the topper matched a row of dots - more by luck than judgement - using foam pads. I then used a Tattered Lace die to cut  a double layered flower from the red and black card, secured it with a red brad and attached it to the bottom right corner. I finished the whole thing off with a black and white dotted bow using some ribbon I bought ages ago.

I think this will go to my niece for her birthday, hope she doesn't see it here first and spoil the surprise!

I'm entering it into the following challenges:

Clear it out challenge: Theme: birthday and Stash: Polka Dots
Just US Girls challenge: black, white and ... another colour

Thanks for stopping by, any comments greatly received.
