Today I am entering into this week's challenge at Dotties World. The challenge is to find a photo of a card made previously and recreate the layout with different papers, embellishments and a Charmed image.

This is the card from the past, together with the sketch I used to create it:

At the time I spun the sketch on its side, and I have done the same with my new card. I have used pink Bazzill cardstock for my base. The girly paper is Love elsie ~ Claire: Girly. I have distressed the edges and zigzag stitched it on to the cardstock with my sewing machine, together with the mauve lace.
This is Holly ~ Pamper Time from the Holly and Madison Collection at Dottie's World. I coloured her up with my Copics. Oh and I managed to find a tiny little gem of the right colour to act as a buckle on her belt.
I also coloured the pearl beads at the foot of Holly with my copics to match the image.
Ribbons are from the same Love elsie ~ Claire range.
The buttons were from my stash and I sewed them on by hand.
By the way, if you enter this challenge you will be entitled to a free image from the new Holly & Madison collection at Dottie's World ~ so head on over!!
Thank you for looking.
