Just Cute Bears - Lets Go Dotty!

The theme of our Just Cute Bears Challenge this week is:


'Lets Go Dotty!'

I've made a 'New Home' card for some friends of mine who moved house this weekend, using 'In the shed' by Lili of the Valley. I coloured it with watercolour pencils, adding their new house number to the little sign, to match the spotty papers from the 'Max & Whiskers' pad by BasicGrey. I distressed the edges of the papers, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The flowers are by Prima, the ribbon & brads are from Poppicrafts, and the sentiment was done on my computer.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration, visit the Just Cute Bears Challenge blog to see the fabulous cards by the rest of the design team, including Ali who is back after a short break, and our guest designer for September...Lols!

I have candy on offer at the moment...you can read all about it on this post.
