Dottie's World Challenge- Inspire Me




We have a fab challenge from Juliet on Dottie's World this week,here's what she said....

For this week's challenge I would like you to take inspiration from this photo of yummy cupcakes. You could focus on the colours, use a cupcake on your work or make a cupcake shaped card - it's up to you. You must include one of the Charmed downloads on your project and please tell us how the photo inspired you in your make"

I love this picture, couldn't you just eat every last one of them?

So I took my inspiration firstly from the pink and brown colour combination.....

I've made another spinner card because they work so well with the Back-to-front images.This is the first time I've coloured Dottie with my Copics but I really like the result.

See what she was hiding?

Another detail taken from the photo is the cherries.....

This 'pop up' cherry was cut on my Silhouette, as was just about every element of this card (No surprises there then! LOL) The brown dotty papere was taken by a doodlebug pad that I found recently at the Papermill shop.

The image is from the Dottie & George Back to Front download collection so if you like her you can purchase her here and have her on your desk in a flash!

To check out this challenge pop over to Dottie's World.
