Dottie's World Sunday Challenge - Going For A Song!

Here it is - "All you have to do along with using a Charmed download, is incorporate the words of a song or the title of a song into your card but you're not allowed 'happy birthday' or 'congratulations' for your song, I know I said easy but that's a step too far along the easy road!"

There are some wonderful DT cards on Dottie's World to inspire - I feel a bit of a cheat really because I only used titles! Anyway, I used the Christmas Collection backgrounds and nativity scene, resized them in word and printed out several times as I decided to go for a layered look. I am not a decoupage person, but this card really does look 3D and the images work perfectly for this technique.

I usually enjoy colouring my own images but in this case I used the pre-coloured ones and just enhanced the colours where I wanted, which made for a much quicker make.

There is a chance for you to be a Guest Designer on Dottie's World this week too! All you have to do is submit your challenge card by Wednesday and the DT will choose our new GD from the entries submitted. Good luck and enjoy playing along.

So glad I never went for "Away in a manger" too...this is stunning. It' really stands out at you. It looks like you have folded out the "walls" of the manger but you haven't..have you? Wonderful Juliet.

love Dingle.xx

It's lovely Juliet!
Love the song titles on the ribbons - I don't think it's cheating at all!

Also love the 3D effect - feels as if you could step inside the stable.

Never mind only using titles, you used THREE titles so it more than compensates :o)

Gorgeous card as always Juliet, just gorgeous!
