Razzle Dazzle-Dottie's World Challenge


Another Sunday, another exciting, fun Dottie's World Challenge! :o)
This week Adele wants us to add some bling to our card, along with a Dottie's World dowloadable.
I must tell you all again how much I LOVE downloadables. They are so much fun to play with. You can resize them and even combine images before you print them..no more masking or paper peicing! Yeah! And you don't need a fancy software to do that. Just open your images in word and play around with them. I have a mac, and I also have adobe photoshop; so I play with my images in photoshop.

Okay so back to today's card...
I used some brand new paper called Lemonade from Basi Grey....I wasn't going to buy this paper, or any more paper for that matter (because I have way too much paper!)....but I just couldn't resist. I lOVE this paper, it's so pretty and perfectly summery...:o)
The brads and bling are also basic grey...okay i went a bit crazy at the scrapstore the other day.
The ribbon is CTMH
The flowers are bazzill
The little circle sentiment stamp is CTMH-Sensational Seals and I stamped it in CTMH-Juniper.
I printed my Holly in the Garden onto my favorite paper for downlaodables....Canson Magna and then I colored her in with my copics...of course! I also used my air brush system and while the image was still in the nestie I air brushed it. I just LOVE that look. I'm hoping to get a mini air compressor for my birthday next month...my fingers are officially crossed.
I also used one of my latest Martha Stewart Border punches.

I also must confess that the idea for this card came from a very talented fellow blogger Nicole...I know awesome name right?? :o)
But really you should check out her blog she makes BEAUTIFUL cards that truly insprire me. :

Thank you for looking and have a super day, and don't forget to check out Dottie's World for all the other designer's cards!
