Dottie's World Challenge

First of all let me apologise for being such a bad blogger this week, I've had so many lovely comments and emails but haven't yet had time to reply to them all. However, I do have a very good reason, I've been finishing the new Holly and Madison collection and a particularly awkward magazine commission. So, am I forgiven? well, I'll show you an image from the new collection and that might help you decide......

This is Holly in Spain from the very soon to be released Holly & Madison's World Tour, what do you think?

Back to the challenge, Nicola wants us to use fabric of some kind on our cards, I know mine isn't a main feature but it is there, I used two strips of frilly velvety ribbon behind the image and the flocked Doodlebug paper that I've used enhances the velvety appearance.

If you would like to play along or if you would just like to drool over what the rest of the design team have produced just pop over to Dottie's World.
