Dottie's World :: use that Photograph

Well Juliet set such a fun challenge on Dottie's World I just had to enter.... I coloured this image on Sunday but did not get the card done until tonight... Busy day today ... jewellery making at church (to send down to ladies in Victoria) and then a friend's bridal shower!

Ok.. so what about the challenge?? Juliet said:

"You can take whatever you like from the photograph: you could focus on the colours, use a cupcake on your work or make a cupcake shaped card - it's up to you. You must include one of the Charmed downloads on your project and please tell us how the photo inspired you in your make by leaving a comment and linking to your blog..."

So here is her photo:

And here is my card (sorry for the poor quality - taken on my mobile as flat batteries for camera... oops!! ... I was mostly inspired by the colours in the cupcakes... but I also liked the spotty tablecloth and so used the dots and colours for a border... and I couldn't forget that wafer .. so the sentiment is sitting on a wafer shape!

CLOSE up of Holly - I used the image Lou gave as a freebie for entering last weeks challenge... Isn't she just gorgeous!!

Thanks for looking :)


  1. Sammi, this is gorgeous. I can't believe you got so many ideas from this and the dotty paper representing the table cloth is fabulous! Great card!!
