Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie

...yellow polka dot bikini...

I bet you all were singing that if you were taking part in this weeks wednesday stampers challenge which is Polka Dots. Hence the yellow polka dots here which I turned into huge sunflowers.. But no bikini :0)
This image was an image kindly given by Rein last week.
The flowers and patterning on the 'sunflowers' are stamps from Autumn Leaves. The verse is by Inkadinkado.
