Dotties World Challenge - Red, Green & Gold

I can't believe that it's my 3rd week as guest designer for Dottie's World, it's going so quickly and I'm still really enjoying it. This week it's Nicola's turn to set the challenge :

Well....Its nearly upon us, Christmas 2008! What a year it has been, the good, the bad and the Ugly!!! My challenge this week is going for the end of our festive juices. RED,GREEN AND GOLD....Of course it doesnt have to be festive, it can be any card or thing you like, aslong as you use a download from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

Well I still had to make a card for my DH, so this is the card that I came up with.

The papers I used are DCWV Christmas Stack and the image is Dottie from the Christmas Bundle which you can download from Charmed Cards and Crafts. I coloured in Dottie using my brush marker pens and aquabrush. For the star and baubles, I used gold embossing powder to give it a bit of texture and sparkle. I cut out the tinsel that Dottie is holding and used some fibres which I had in mystash. The sentiment I used is also from the Dottie Christmas Bundle. The gems and ribbon are from my stash. TFL x
