Sunday Challenge #5

Hi everyone, Juliet here with this week's challenge. You can make this as simple or as detailed as you like - the challenge is to make a card featuring one of 'Dottie's World' downloads but I would like you to use both stripes and stitching on your card. My first card shows 'Dress-up Dottie' in her stripey tiger costume............

.............and the super cool 'Disco Dottie' from the 'Funtime' bundle, complete with glittery leg warmers!Our other DT members have used images from the brand new Christmas Collection, available right now by clicking the link on the right .............................

Karen's fabulous card shows Dottie with her snowman and, if you look closely, you will see the beautiful silver threads she used for the stitching



Louise has used this fantastic image of Dottie as a Christmas Pudding on her 'Eat, Drink and Be Merry' card, with stripes created by stitching the backing papers. Aren't those colours just gorgeous?

Nicola is so clever at creating window scenes with such amazing detail, and in her 'Deck the Halls' card she has used stripes in the wallpaper, corrugated card and look at the stitching in the 'Merry Christmas' banner!

There are so many different ways of interpreting this challenge and we can't wait to see your work. As usual, please leave a comment with a link to your card so we can visit you.


Have a great day,


Juliet xx
