Dottie's World!

Well, I was really stoked this week when I received an email from Louly asking me to be a guest designer for Dottie's World this week ... my excitement turned into fear as I realised what I'd got myself in for... The Dottie's World Design team are fabulous and week after week produce amazing works of art for the challenges!! :)

So, Louise's challenge this week on Dottie's world is a double challenge/ a multi-challenge challenge. The idea is to double up with another challenge.

My first card is doubled up with the Friday Sketchers challenge.
I really loved their sketch ... FUN!! :)
I used Maternity Dottie from the Love and Marriage download set
and coloured her in with my watercolour pencils.

the Cute Card Thursday challenge is one I love! Their theme this week is:
"The Two of Us".

This is absolutely perfect for the Dottie and George "Love and Marriage" downloads...

The problem I had was that there are so many perfect images in this collection and so I decided I'd use a whole stack of them for the one card!! I used Louise's pre-coloured images as I wanted to print them quite small and it is a lot harder to colour images when they are scaled down...
*I did add in an image from the Christmas package*

Thanks for looking :)

* Dottie and George downloads
* ribbon, and paper, and large bloom - "My Inspiration", from Big W
* cardstock and small bloom - Alice in Paperland
