Going Dotty in Winter

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

What a busy, busy week and brrrrr, so cold too! Hope you have been having a good week and that it's warmer than it is here. It was a high of 5 the other day! To say that I won't miss winter is an understatement! Spring can't get here soon enough!

Today is new challenge day over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. And this week I have combined these challenges to create my DT card. At JM the challenge is "Going Dotty" and at SS our theme is "Winter" so I've used this sweet Tilda in her winter best and combined her with some dotty papers!

These papers are Bo Bunny Tis the Season, which I love and will be very sad when I've used them all up! I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then used the sketch from Papertake Weekly when assembling the card. The image was colored with Copics and cut out and adhered to a dry embossed circle frame created with Nesties. I've embellished with sticky gems, ribbon, and a snowflake made with the Whimsy Stamps Winter's Jewel 1 die.

This card also fits over at:
Creative Belli - anything beginning with "P"(pretty papers)
Paper Pretties - sewing
Penny's Paper-Crafty – anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - anything goes
My Time To Craft - embossing

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I will be back tomorrow with a special post for a special person! Until then, have a great Friday!

I hate the cold, I was very lucky to move to Florida last year and it turns out that this year is a record breaker for snow where I used to live.
Your card is totally adorable, the image the colors, the ribbon, it's all so cute together.
