Friday Sketchers and Dotties Challenge

This is the Sketch you have to follow on the Friday Sketchers Challenge
It's Kristine from Norway who is hosting the challenge 41 this week

On Dotties World it Juliets time to set the challenge :
I don't know about you, but when my mojo has beggared off I often find inspiration from browsing photographs, so I decided to use this photograph of yummy looking cupcakes for the challenge this week.
You can take whatever you like from the photograph: you could focus on the colours, use a cupcake on your work or make a cupcake shaped card - it's up to you. You must include one of the Charmed downloads on your project and please tell us how the photo inspired you in your make by leaving a comment and linking to your blog.

The inspiration for this card came from the strips and the colours on the cupcakes.
My friend had asked me to make a card for her Granddaughter and I was really struggling to come up with an idea until I saw the Dotties Challenges (thank you)
and thought it would work perfectly with the Friday Sketch
The images is from Dotties Dressed Up collection
The paper used are pink, brown and white paper from the paper mill, the striped paper was in my stash and I am not sure where I got it from.
Dotties is coloured using my Tria markers with highlights done in Satura Gelly Glaze
The mats are raised slightly of the card by using silicon glue
I put three gems in opposite corners just to add a bit of bling
Thanks for looking

That's really cute! Isn't it funny though how Dottie's face changes when you flip her over? I don't know why that happens. LOL.
Thanks for playing chuck ♥♥♥
