MMSC #43

First I have to tell all of you that I won 2nd place for my Annie card at Art Impressions. Take a look here. I am so excited!

This here is my Midnight Madness entry for this week. Dotty is the character you see. I bought her with my winnings from last month at Art Impressions. She just cracks me up! She looks so happy and content with who she is and what she is doing. Dotty is living in the moment! I decided to use the vellum as the layer behind the main image because everything else I used covered up my pretty brown patterned paper. The butterflies are rub-ons and I colored Dotty with copic markers. This card is meant for my Dork Sister, Vikki Jo for her birthday next week. Vikki has a fear of butterflies (I know! Crazy isn't it?) Well, the rest of the dork sisters and I tend to send Vikki Jo butterfly cards to tease her.
Well ladies, put your big girl panties on and go dance!

Stamp: Dotty by Art Impressions
paper: vellum, pattern paper from butterflies and blossoms mat stack
markers: copics YG 11,13,17 B14, R20, 27, E000, 00, 11
accessories: cuttlebug folder and nestie dies.
