Hello Charlotte! Are you feeling dotty?

Hah! My new stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie came the other day and I finally got a chance to get them mounted. Yahoo! I had to play with them right away, so I got out Charlotte first and decided to combine a whole mess of challenges with the card.

I used Dawny's Sketch for Simon Says Stamp Challenge, saw some spots for Cheryl's Lots of Dots (#137) Challenge for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, and did Craft Your Passion's Kraft, Lace, or Ribbon Challenge. I'm feeling sooooo efficient!!!

Here's the sketch!

I flipped it 90° and came up with this!

I stamped the image onto Cryogen white cardstock, which while not the whitest cardstock in the world, is shimmery. I'm a magpie, so I just love things that sparkle and shimmer. I colored the image with Copic markers to match the dotted paper from My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline-Fiddlesticks paper. I found some kraft-colored dotty Bazzill cardstock, which I used for the card front and for part of the sentiment die cut. Kraft-colored lace was added to one of the dotty layers to add another horizontal element. The sentiments were cut with Labels Four Nestabilities and I used brown rub-ons for the ever-so-original greeting. I did veer from the sketch because I just had to add another pink element and some bling.

Boo. Hiss!!! I just realized I forgot to add Glaze pen to the dolls' buttons.

Thanks for visiting today!
