Sunday Challenge - Animal Magic!

Hi everyone, Juliet here hoping you're having a sizzling weekend in this gorgeous weather.

This week's Sunday Challenge is all about animals (well we all love them don't we?), birdies or bugs. As usual use an image of Dottie, George or the Cats but you can use Dottie dressed as an animal (there are quite a few!), you could use animal backing papers or you could add a separate embellishment(s), as I have done with the little bug, the owl stamp and Dottie's cat.

I have used Knitting Dottie from the 'Dottie at Home' collection, Basic Grey papers, Prima flowers (all available from http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ ), and I decoupaged Dottie's face, hair, cat, slippers and arms so her hands hold the knitting needles.


Nicola has used Leo Dottie from the 'Zodiac Collection'. She created the circular sentiment by following the tutorial at Charmed and the birds and swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder was brayered with Memento inks - how fab is that effect!!!
Louise used Dream Street papers for her card and the flowers are Prima orchids – all available from Charmed. She took the large centres out of the orchids to ensure the card would fit in the envelope and added some spotty brads instead. I love these papers and I adore this Dottie image which is from the 'Dress up Dottie' collection.

I hope you enjoy the challenge and as always we can't wait to see all your cards - don't forget to leave a link to your blog.

Happy crafting,
Juliet xx

Great challenge, already have some ideas going round inside my head but unfortuneately we have to go out today so it will have to wait till later. Juliet your card is awesome, I love those wee knitting needles, Nicola that embossed and inked background panel looks gorgeous and Lou those colours are so vibrant and Dottie looks great in blue, everytime I see this image it is different I really must get round to doing one myself. Have a great week everyone looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Jac x
