Wednesday Stamper- Polka Dots

I am a little later this week with my entry for Wednesday Stamper, but here it is. I love looking at other peoples work, as it gives me ideas and inspiration, and so far there are 72 entries! I have seen some of them already as I have been browsing blogs each day, but I think I may have to settle in with a hot drink and look at the rest. I don't want to miss anything!
This card was inspired by a baby book Dan has, and uses a photo that Rein posted on her blog for people to play with. Thanks, Rein! She has challenged people to use this image and post the link to her blog, so this card fulfills two challenges.
The spots were stamped with a Judikins cube which has four sizes of solid spots. The larger spots were stamped in Stazon onto a white card, the smaller spots were stamped in various colours of Brilliance and Versamagic onto black card, then translucent buttons glued over the top. The writing was added to the photo using Paint Shop Pro before printing, (my handwriting isn't arty enough!), and the little tag was cut using a Sizzix die, then I drew the tiny heart.
Thanks for the challenges!
