Pink Dotty

I've made a really simple little card today, using my current favourite DP, a couple of scraps of pink ribbon, a strip of lace and some pearls.  Oh, and my new NESTIE !!! Yippee - I just love this Fleur de Lis one after seeing it on lots of blogs lately and couldn't resist a little purchase.  I think I'm addicted to these things (no cure being sought!).  I've used the smaller nestie on the inside of the card too, and used two complementary images of Baby Dotty from the fabulous Stamp Fairy.   

I double stamped the image and cut out the second one to layer it over the base image on sticky pads for depth.  I also used pink shimmer chalk around the base image and sentiment for shadow.  The "Congratulations" sentiment is one of my own, and you can download it from my Freebies page if you want it.   Finally, with all the detail on the beautiful paper and nestie, I actually resisted the urge to splatter-gun loads of flowers over the card for once!    Hope you like my "Dotty" card.
