Dottie's World- Coffee & Cream

I've been a bad blogger this week, in fact I've been bad with everything! I've had a week of doing nothing and I feel so much better for it! But I'm here now with my challenge card for the Dottie's world challenge. This is the brief from Karen;

The challenge is simply "Coffee and Cream with spots or stripes" - and a Charmed download of course
Here's what I came up with...

I kept it nice and simple but i think it turned out OK. I used one of the cat downloads from Charmed Cards and Crafts and some left over scraps of paper cut with my Sizzix heart die for the base. I wimped out a little bit with the spots or stripes aspect but I hope it counts, I went for the spotty design on the cat and used my spots embossing folder for the cream paper but you can't actually see it very well on the picture.

We have our four new designers starting today so please pop over to Dottie's World and give them a big warm welcome.

Hi Louise
This is such an unusual design - I love it! I may have to buy this download, if only for the cards I make for a cat-loving friend of mine. They are so modern (cool for cats actually)!! Thanks also for your help earlier today re. the link info., and for your kind comment on my challenge card.
All the best, Sylvia xxxx
