Coffee and Cream Dottie's World Challenge

Well this is my last card as guest designer on Dottie's World. It has been a fabulous experience, even though I was very, very nervous of doing it.
Can I just thank those of you who left such kind comments, they really are appreciated.
So,I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I came up with during this past month and if you are given the chance to become guest designer yourself Go For It!

Anywho, enough of my jabber!

The challenge this week is set by Karen.
The theme for this challenge is to use Coffee and cream on spots or stripes and of course, a Charmed download.
I think I may have got the lot on this card( if you use the term stripes loosely lol!).

Here it is....
The lovely Holly has been paper pieced(in a way, I printed my Holly then traced the bits I wanted in different paper). The shells were cut on my robo onto coffee and cream coloured cardstocks, then cut again using Basic Grey - Pods from the Archiac collection.

Take care all, TFL
