Simply spotty!

I have been having a quick play making a card for a young girl. I have kept it quite simple and in a graphic style, so I haven't put a sentiment on the front as I didn't want to break up the shapes and colours.
I found some beads from a kit my girls had a long time ago, this generated the colour scheme. I sorted out some matching scraps and used a stationary punch to add my "spots".
I turned the beads into a "hanging charm" to add a bit of kinetic interest. I felt the paper spots were dull incomparison to the plastic beads so I added some clear nail varnish over the spotty topper, to give a final "shiny glaze".

Gorgeous card for a girl. Love the hanging charm and that's a great tip to use clear nail varnish. I have just added that to my shopping list!!
