Stamps and Smiles & Dottie's World


Another two challenges combined but these two work so well together, I couldn't resist. Stamps & Smiles had a sketch to follow, which I've turned around & Dottie's World was to make it holey, so I cut out the circles that were on the sketch.

I've used a Charmed download "Holly in the USA" but I have to say it's not my colouring in (sadly as it's so good!) I've used a coloured image as the colours went with the papers perfectly so it made sense. The gorgeous papers are digi-papers from Summertime Designs and when I came across them I immediately thought of the Holly image as I knew they'd work well together. The paper on the inside of the card is like a patchwork quilt, so sweet and I thought it'd be fun to have it showing through. I've added some chalks to the edge of Holly, it was too white otherwise and have used an SU sentiment from my much loved & used "Circle of Friendship" inked with Ruby Red & the cardstock is also SU's Bashful Blue
