Let's Polka... shall we???

Well today's challenge at Sharon's is to polka...now don't get your panties in a ruffle, she means use polka dots on your card. Well I wanted to dance the polka too, so you're not alone;however, at my age I don't think I could do it justice the way I did in my 20's. I dated a Polish fellow and we danced the polka down at a little neighborhood bar to the music of Stan Bejniak's Polish band( of course I didn't spell that name correct! I'm not Polish). What fun and if you think aerobics gives you a work out...try doing the fast polka for a few hours. Fun but also pretty hard on the heart and airways. But back to the business at hand. This little polka dotted number used K & Company DP on the top,( it's a mod type of polka dots, don't you think?) some red & white polka dotted ribbon from Mike's and a little pd( short for polka dots) black and white chipboard flower along with my circle Nesties. The stamped butterfly is part of a set from Impression Obsession and the phrase is from Hero Arts. Of course I added some bling in silver and red.
Check out the super design team's work ...these ladies are GOOD!

Happy weekend friends and if you get out to do the polka ...be sure to stop in between dances and have a sip of beer or two. Holy kielbasa,I wish I could come along with you! Wonder if Stan is still playing the accordian and tapping his feet ??

Hey Pat, with your age and my big butt, we could still manage maybe a half spin around the dance floor, couldn't we? I'll polka with you anytime but then we'd have to head back to the table for a beer!

Your card is adorable! I love all the PD's, and especially that PD chipboard flower behind your circle! Too cute!

Love those mod polka dots! This is a fantastic card, Pat! Lovely layout and great use of all those dots. I once dated a guy from Wisconsin. It was destined to fail, though. I have 2 left feet and don't drink beer!! Happy Weekend!
