Dottie Challenge - Recipe

The Dottie Challenge this week is a recipe. And I'm useless at cooking but I think I did ok with this one! The recipe is:
1 of the downloads
1 ribbon
3 buttons
1 flower, but it has to be handmade (not a shop bought one, oh no!)
Chuck it all together and see what you come up with!

I'd had a printing fest of Dottie images over the weekend (well, I hate to waste good card so thought I'd print a few images off in one go!) and I'd been rewarded with the image of Scruff for taking part in a challenge a few weeks ago - you can't buy this image so its a special one!

Anyway, I've rounded the edges of the image with my trusty punch, (how DID I manage before?!) inked the edges of all the papers (Funky Daze by the way!), added the ribbon - should have bought much much more of it when I had the chance cos its very fantastic! And then added the buttons. The ribbon across the card is just tied where you see it as I couldn't get it to tie properly with two ends and neatly in a bow. The loose end by the buttons is just doubled back on itself. Thought it would look a bit different.

And the flower?! Made with my very wonderful Cuttlebug flower dies - 3 different flower shapes which I have pinched into shape and layered. Easy peasy!

  • Backing paper: Funky Daze from Funky Hand
  • Image: Scruff in the tub - special freebie from Dottie's World
  • Buttons: From my stash
  • Ribbon: From my stash
  • Flower: Made by me with Funky Daze papers and Cuttlebug Flower die


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Good for you for not wasting the card, I'd have done that too.
