Another Two Challenges In One!!!!!!

Phew! Here is my entry for the Friday Sketchers Challenge and Dotties World! This one was a real challenge for me, being new to challenges but I did them both. I used a download from the Dotties World Christmas Collection and used Whisper pens to colour them in, then I have mounted that onto some of the new Anitas Christmas Papers . My card is once more covered in some Bazzil bling green card(I blame my eldest daughter for all the Bazzil bling card use as she introduced me to it lol) The Dotties challenge was to combine a Dottie image with another challenge. The sketch was the challenge from Friday Sketchers, it was very challenging as you had to curl the paper/card that your image was on and twist the ribbons(and get them to stay on and twisted lol) I curled the edge of the paper with a pokey tool and used distress inks to colour the edges in. My ribbons I have used two and twisted them together, then I have used a couple of Prima flowers and secured them with a little christmas tree, which is like felt to touch and is from the new Anitas christmas range. I have added a christmas sentiment and some square gems to finish it off.

Hi Arline! Welcome to the Dottie's World challenges. I have to confess that I got a bit confused between you and your daughter at first but I did some investigations and it's all clear to me now! LOL it doesn't take much to confuse me.
Anyway, I love your card, the colours are just perfect. I see the artistic talent runs in the family. xx
