Dottie's World Challenge

Hello and Happy Sunday!
It's another challenge day at DW today and The exceptional Gunn is hosting this week.....and did she dream up a challenge!!!
Here is what she wants:

"When I say gingerbreadhouse I mean: lets be inspired by them. They have this beautiful warm brown color, and the embellishment are so full of colores. And ofcours I get reminded of the fact that Christmas is coming up.
So think about the colors and the embellishments or even the shape of gingerbreadhouses and use some of it on a card or a box. And ofcourse there has to be a Charmed downloads on the project."

Okay so I LOVE gingerbread anything....:o}, but this was tough!
I decided to go with the whole "gingerbread house decorating thing..." Lots of yummy embellishments and yummy papers....and a Holiday themed Charmed Download.
Works for me!
The Charmed Image I used is from the Dottie Bumper Christmas Collection and you can get it HERE
Of course Dottie and her snowman friend are colored with copics
The paper is Eskimo Kisses by My Mind's Eye

I wanted to show you two different stickles I used on this card. The Snow is Frosted Lace stickles.....it dries with a rough surface and very little sparkle...perfect for snow. :o)
I used my favorite stickle color-Star Dust on the Snowman and Dotties' buttons. Star Dust has a pearl essence color to it and will pick up any color beneath it. So color with your copics first and then add a dot or two and voila!

Thanks for stopping by today...make sure you check out Dotties World to see what the other designer's came up with for this challenge.
