Dotties world challenge "Go Green"

Wow i cant beleive it.... I was chosen to be the next guest designer for Dotties world. I am over the moon.

I have had to put this onto my blog really early as i'm going to the great northern papercrafts extravaganser today and it takes 2 hours to get their. so i wont be back until late.

Well here is the challenge it was set by Karen this week

"Everything today is set on environmental issues, so lets GO GREEN! it really is that simple, show me how green you can get! But this is a green dish with a few extra ingredients, sprinkle it with three buttons or brads, season with a little ribbon, and finally add that special little "recycled something"

This is my card

The image is from George at work which i coloured with my prisma pencils and blended with sansador i then cut him out and decoupaged him to give him a little depth. i added 2 eylets and threaded 3 pieces of wire twine through (this is my recycled bit as the twine was used to wrap my parcel up that i received from art from the heart when they sent me some blog candy). I then matted and layered the image onto scraps from my ever increasing pile of paper. as you have guessed it is Blonde moments "citrus fling" papers. (I love these papers). i then added my 3 flower brads.

I loved doing this challenge. i think my darling hubby has got used to me crafting whilst delivering parcels in his van. (i now have a mobile craft room)(how good is that)

ooohhh i cant wait till next weeks challenge.........

Brilliant card, Tracey! I especially love the depth created by the decoupage - AND George's muddy clothes (I can imagine what my mam would have to say if dad got that dirty - LOL!)

Well done on being guest designer!
