Recessed Window Card

After whinging about my photographic skills, I have realised that my problem is taking photos indoors or on cloudy days - seeing as cloudy days are all we seem to be getting at the moment, I thought any future photos would be doomed! However, I have had a play with my phone camera (the only one I own) and have discovered the exposure button. Oh joy, what a difference it made! Now, I realise that I'm never going to win any awards for my photos, but at least they will be a lot less grainy! Looking at past posts I see that nearly all of my challenge card entries have included stamped images. This is quite a turnaround for me, as, until a few months ago I didn't like stamping at all. This was because I could never colour in the images to a standard I was happy with, but that all changed when I discovered Promarkers and now it seems that I don't ever make any other kind of cards. So I have decided to do something different for the challenge at Just Cute Bears where we have been asked to 'Go Dotty'. My card features Bubbles from the Daisy & Dandelion range and I have decoupaged her onto a recessed window card I made instead of my usual flat card. I thought she would be perfect for this challenge as not only are the papers/card dotty, but she has tiny dots on her ballerina dress.
