Magnolia Down Under Challenge #9 - Spot the Dots

This week's challenge is "Spot the Dots". I had the absolute pleasure of finally meeting Her Royal Highness Princess Kristy and the Divine Miss Kellie today at a team was like we were old friends - but we had to get to work and they had swaps to get on with for Convention!! The great thing was I actually got to see Kristy's card for this challenge IRL. I know the photo won't do it justice - they never do!! I got to see a few others I've only seen in blogland too - it's such an eye opener to see how much nicer they are when you can see the dimension, details and the glitter actually sparkling!!

Back to my card - I've used spotty DP, my Swiss Dots embossing folder, rhinestone "spots" and nestie circles - so hopefully you'll be able to spot a dot or 2 on the card - LOL. The colours were pretty much decided by the Tilda I chose - she was already coloured up in my drawer and was looking so sweet I couldn't help but pull her out to use her. I had thought to use a Tilda who was wearing spots - but didn't! It always amazes me how my plans take shape and often never end up like I thought!!!!

Hope you can come along and add a few spots to MDUC this week - and check out the other DT cards!!!

This is one of my favorite Magnolia cards that you've done. I love that image (and she colored extra cute!), and who can go wrong with dots and flowers? I love that Tilda is sitting in the circle.
