Two Challenges In One

As soon as I read the brief for Rainbow Lady's challenge No. 25 (use spots, stripes and the word 'smile' and/or 'be happy' ) I knew I wanted to use my Doodlebug 'abc' embellishments which have been sitting around unopened for a few weeks.

I then noticed the Multi Challenge - Challenge over at Dottie's World (to combine the use of one of their downloads with at least one other current craft challenge) so this card was born. The cardstock is Stampin Up, the cute Dottie in the bath is a download from Charmed Cards & Crafts coloured with brush markers and Stickles. The stripey and dotty papers are both DCWV and the pretty dotty ribbon and blue brad slider are from Poppicrafts. Last but not least I used my Doodlebug letters to make the word 'smile.'

Oh what a fabulous card Den, I think little Dottie is so sweet and she goes perfectly with all the other colourful components on your card.

What a funky card. Love the spots and striped effect. The slider brad is really cool too. Will need to get some of those myself I think!
