Going Dotty With Team Lou.

 Team Lou are leading the way this fortnight and the challenge theme is

Great Sponsors again this time, and the image I used is by one of them,
Lollyrot by Lollyrot
Now, I have to be honest here, This isn't my usual style of image and I panicked at first, that was until I got out my pens and coloured her up, I absolutely love her.

She seemed to magically whisper and all of the elements fell into place easily.

Maybe I should have left the flower without the flitterglu and guilding flakes, I might decide to replace that element.
I recycled a page from a battered book, it looked pretty fab with the guilding flakes and I'm sorry, actually I'm not going to appologise for my bunting, it's my indulgence lol!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CIO, Stash/2 or more papers,
DOC51, Sparkle,
CYP162, Children at play,
CC99,Pick 3 Embossing,distress, home made flower,
CC242, Lots of layers,
Fashionista15, Vintage or shabby,
MIM140, Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,

I personally love your flower!

I would have loved a full on look at the front of this as well as the arty one from an angle, lol, but it's a fablous design. I love the rich colours and there is so much detail going on. I also love your bunting so no apology necessary!

Thanks for joining us

Thanks Lin, I usually do a straight on view but for some reason the one I took was so blurry! Will try to take another when I've more time. X
