Dottie Challenge - Spring is Nearly Here!

My first contribution to Dottie's World Challenge as joint Guest Designer for February!

The brief is:

Spring is nearly I want to see shades of yellow & green
Now, I know what you are thinking - where are the shades of yellow? Well, I'm blaming the very poor daylight for not showing the true colours! And if you still don't believe me, I've used the Monday Morning collection from Funky Daze - so you can check the colour-ways! I'm quite impressed with myself with the blue on Dottie's dress following through on the backing papers!

I've rounded and inked all the edges (dark green Whispers ink), neatly cut Dottie out and added 3d foam pads behind her so she stands out a little. A little more than she already is! The ribbon is from a recent generous donation from Enfys and the flowers are from a recent stash swop with Jozza. Thanks ladies!! The brads are from my stash.

Check back this time next week to see what the weekly challenge is - hope you can join us!
