Believe this or not my friends but this card was made during the night - I couldn't sleep a wink so thought to myself - hey just get up and do some crafting in peace and quiet so this is the result!

Using Dotty from Cardmadfairy Creations, I used my Promarkers to add colour and set her on some fabulous DP from Pink Petticoat with Flowers range. This is a gate-fold card for The Cuttle Bug challenge so the second pic shows this. I used my Bigshot to emboss the Swiss Dots on the pearlised navy card and then again to cut the square shape she sits on with a Nellie Snellen square die. The white stripe is put thru the BS again using an embossing folder. (FAO girls at The CuttleBug Spot - hope I can use my Bigshot - did check the rules and hope I am correct).
This close up of Dotty just simply shows what a pretty wee girl she is and you can buy her over at Cardmadfairy's Creations.

I am entering this into the following challenges:~
Double Dutch Sketch Challenge;
Bunny Zoe's Flowers Everywhere and
The CuttleBug Spot.
