Dotty about Classic Minis!

Hi everyone!

The other day I came across the lovely Monikas blog! She makes some very inspiring cards making her own backgrounds with no patterned paper which I love!

She's also got a challenge this month as its her birthday for you to re-create one of her cards which I was really excited about! (Link below)

Here's my card:

It covers 3 of the category's she provided:

No pattern paper
Manly card

I made the Union Jack by drawing a circle in pencil (later rubbed out) and just dotting with my Promarkers!

And of course It had to have a classic mini stamped :-P

Here's Monkias card that I based it on:

Hope you like it Monika! :-) Happy Birthday!

Thanks everyone else for stopping by!

I'm also putting together some celebration candy this week so stay tuned :-)
