Joan's Challenge Belly Band

Good Morning Ladies,
I missed Joan's challenge last week but this week I got right on it.
So my card for today is Joan's Challenge Belly Band
You can see and enter the challenge here
The requirements for the challenge this week are as follows:
Use polka dots
Make a gate fold card
Use a fancy belly band around the card
Use a product that can be purchased at
Here is my card....
This was a fun card to make. It did take me a couple of attempts at getting the gate fold card the right size. But I managed. The cardstock I used to create the gate fold card base is from Doddlebug. This is a glittered paper as the dots are glittered. 
The belly band was made of plain white card stock with a piece of the polka dot card stock wrapped around it in the center. The flowers were created using the Sunflower die from Cheery Lynn. I purchased this die from This is one of my favorite flower dies. The two blue flowers on each end had the petals pinched. Pop dots are in between each layer for a 3-D effect. Pearl sprigs set behind the flowers. White flat back doves sit on each flower center.
This is the front of the gate fold card.
The sentiment is from Rubber Cottage.  I just got back from the stamp show a week or two ago and purchased this stamp. A shout out to Terri to check out this company as it has lots of awesome sayings and images. If you like the images from this company give Terri a holler by e-mail. A flat back dove accents the inside sentiment.
A close-up of the sentiment.
Thanks Joan for another great challenge.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
