Dottie's World Challenge

Hello Crafters!
How are you all this beautiful sunshiny day? ("yer right"I here you all moan, ehehe). Ah well forget the horrible weather and escape to your crafting areas because Nicole has a fab sketch for us this week at Dottie's World....I got started really early with this card and everything was ready to be stuck together when I got a sudden last minute Creativity commission in so I put it all safely to the side to be finished later. Hmmmm the problem is when I put it all together today it appears I forgot the sketch a bit and one of my rectangles is the wrong way round! But it doesn't matter, you can still see the basic layout and that's the aim with sketches after all.

Here's what I came up with...

I thought the background to the image was a little stark when it was white so out came my shimmer chalks, I'm quite pleased with the way it compliments the colour scheme now.

The papers are from Bo Bunny here and the image is one of my own drawings which are sold as digital download at Charmed Cards and Crafts so you can get everything for this card at the same place and in the same transaction, handy eh? :)
