Dotties Challenge - A Recipe

The challenge this week is set by Juliet
This week we are working with a Recipe.....

At least 1 Charmed Download

1 Flower - must be handmade not shop brought!

3 Buttons

1 Ribbon

Chuck it all together and add a bit of doodling to finish.

Have fun!

When I first read this I thought this is a little out of my comfort zone, I do not often do flowers, I have never used buttons or done doodling, but at least I know how to use ribbon and the Charmed Downloads!!

I sat down and made a card, then just as I was about to send it in, I realised that I had not followed the recipe, teach me to read things properly lol.
I will put the card on later

So back to the drawing board. I decieded to make a flower top box, I mounted three leaf buttons with their shacks cut off on the top, I doodle on the petals and the edges of the box. I tied a bow in some ribbon and put it aroung the centre, and finished with a Front and Back Dottie Butterfly
Thanks for the Challenge Juliet

And Thanks to Dotties World for having me as January guest designer it has been fun.
They are chosing a new guest designer for February so make sure you get your creations done by Thursday, I can highly recommend it.
