Dottie Challenge - Lurve!

The Dottie Challenge this week is:

Just plain love or romance for Valentine, what you do is up to you!

And what a time I had making this card! This is actually my second attempt as I originally made a Valentines card but just was not happy with it. And as I was running out of time (and camera battery power but that's another story!) I used a pre coloured Dottie image and took inspiration from her tunic for the theme of the card.

So I've gone for a love of shopping rather than a Valentine themed card!

I've rediscovered an old favourite - The Funky One from Funky Hand, the very first cd! Both papers I printed off as B5 size as I wanted a smaller pattern, edges have been inked and rounded and the ribbon is from my stash. The green organza got a little lost amongst the patterns so I put a piece of white paper behind it. Sentiment has been stamped with a little wooden Studio G alphabet set in Whispers Chestnut.

I hope you can play along this week and I look forward to seeing what you've created! And remember to keep the camera batteries charged!
