Dottie's World Challenge - Black, White and a Splash of Colour

For the challenge this week at Dottie's World you are asked to use black and white and one other colour. As I was making a Christmas card I chose red. I decided to make a shaker card as I have lots of these bubble front cards and beads which I wanted to use up. I popped Dottie onto some Cuttlebug embossed card to give the focal point of the card a bit of interest. The red paper is the scrummy DaisyD's paper again (I'm in love!!) The sentiments are from the Christmas Dottie downloads and I added some embellishments to make it really pretty!


Here are some more views of the card, I wish you could hear the sound of the beads as they roll about, it's so therapeutic!!

Love Becky xx
