Dotie's World Challenge - Christmas (!!!!)

It's another prize week over at Dottie's World! (thank you Karen). To be in with a chance of winning the challenge prize pop over and play along!

The theme is Christmas - it's never too early!
Here's what I came up with.......
As you can see, you don't have to go all green red and gold to do Christmas, I've gone for much more muted tones for my card. The papers are My Mind's Eye, the sentiment ins Imaginisce and the image is Madison in the mountains, I enlarged her and cropped her.

I love making these little distressed rosettes, they're so easy and a great alternative to flowers, all you have to do is tear some circles of patterned paper, distress the edges (I use my Tim Holtz edge distresser) scrunch them up, un-scrunch them then pile them up voila!

Why don't you pop over to Dottie's World to find out more.
