I hope you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend. Weathermen in their infinite wisdom promised blazing hot sunshine today here in London, but it is a rather grey and murky day. Not that I am complaining, can't say I enjoy the heat all that much; and if it's a hot summer you will no doubt hear me complain quite a lot about that!! Clearly we all feel the heat differently, what one enjoys and can't get enough of, another (me) finds stifling and oppressive.

Anyway, enough weather talk. Let me move onto the Dottie's World challenge. This week the lovely Adele set the challenge and she wanted to see some buttons or beads. I used "Holly in the Garden" from the original Holly & Madison digi-stamp bundle, it's my favourite image from that bundle.

The papers, borders, "Love" and bee are from Basic Grey's Wisteria range.
"A weed...." is K&Co Cut & Paste.
Leafy branches with gems are K&Co AB Lotus.
Buttons are Basic Grey and the purple metallic brads are Dovecraft
I drew some extra flowers on the card, including a little bunch in Holly's hand.

The image was fairly loosely cut around and I coloured in the background with a colour as closely resembling the background as possible.

Pop over to Dottie's World and see what marvelous creations the other DT members have come up with.

TFL and enjoy your day ♥
