Dottie's World Challenge - It's A Recipe!

It's my turn to set the challenge this week at Dottie's World and I came up with a recipe - recipes seem very popular this week LOL! Anyway, here it is.....

1 Charmed Download
1 Ribbon
3 Buttons
1 Flower - Handmade (Not a shop bought one - oh no!)
A bit of doodling if you like
Chuck it all together and see what you come up with!

I used the beautiful birdies from the 'Animal Magic' collection, and coloured them with Ranger Distress Inks, adding a little Glossy Accents and doodling with white Inkessentials pen. I made the flower from punched circles, adding a brad to the centre, velvet ribbon twisted for the stem and paper beads for the leaves. The card fastens together with the blue grossgrain ribbon.

Inside I used a Prima journal block stamp to give space for a message.

We're looking for a new Guest Designer for February at Dottie's World, so if you would like to join the team just enter this week's challenge and upload your work to your blog before 6pm on Thursday. We will choose the new team member and Louise will email the lucky winner!

Enjoy your Sunday and TFL xx
