ImageDutch Girl freebie from the new SC Dutch blog
Afternoon Peeps!! 
Its time for a new challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog and this week we want to see you all....
 Going Dotty!!!
oooooh I was in my element 'cos ya'll know I love love love dots!! anything spotty is always going to  be fun! :) and I absolutely loved the image krista drew especially for the Dutch Canary blog. Please pop on over and visit the girls over there, they are just so awesome and you can also read up on the details to get this cutie yourself. I coloured her up with my promarkers (...colours in listy below...) and added a few dots to the red bit on her hat and pinny.

I decided to stick with some traditional dutch colours and tried to keep a little yellow in there for the canary on the basket too!!!

Pins.....its the first time I have ever used them on a card and I actually quite enjoyed tucking them into my little bakers twine bow!! I did however fell the need to colour in some little glass beads to match the colours on the top and then glue them onto the ends of the pins so they weren't sharp and pointy!!

Flowers....OH MY GOSH!! I am totally loving my new Layered Rose die, its just gorgeous and this was the first time I had played with that too, I love how the flower wumpfs up when you emboss it and layer it up.

Here's a little list of the bits I used to make my card...
