My Dotty Creation

I fell in love with the CASology cue word of this week : Dot. Hop over to check out the fantastic DT inspiration here.
When I heard of dot, I was instantly reminded of this video game I used to play a LOT as a kid : Pacman. You have to advance each level by eating all the dots in the maze and killing the monsters. Well, I left out the monster part(we don't want to be scared now, do we?) and took up the theme of dot and eating. What I came up with was a type of an invitation card for dinner(weird, right? But that's me, I'm afraid).

How do you like the fake diecut seniment?(code for handwritten and hand-cut :D) And yeah, the black base of the card? I sponged the ONLY sheet of cardstock remaining in my stock(a vile shade of green) black.

The pac-dots and the pacman's eye are actually exploits from my mother's stick-on bindis. (But that's kind of a secret. Because I didn't actually ask her before taking them :p).

Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!
