Dotties World Challenge - Inspire me!

This week over at Dotties World Juliet challenged us to be inspired by a photo she had chosen. Great idea. Looking at my finished card it could be hard to see where I got my inspiration from but here goes, firstly the chocolate and pink colour way is my basis with a touch of the blue, flowers - the chocolate icing, buttons - the cakes I used the Holly in the USA pre coloured image I just adore this image and paper pieced her top with a piece of the paper from the pad that the rest came from which is K&Co Classic K Bailey. I also did some distressing by folding and sanding (with an emery board!) the papers and then inked round the edges of the image using rich chocolate ink pad and pulled it towards the image too. I was trying for a bit of a collagey, old look but not sure if it really worked. I see so many others out there who do this type of style so beautifully but I really struggle. TFL
