We have inspirational cards to show you this week over at Little Miss Muffet.
I decided that I wanted to use some texture this week, so I chose to use one of  the Jr Hatter images released a couple of weeks ago because the character is holding a cuddly toy.
This is Jr Hatter Dorothea...

Can you guess what movie I thought of when I first saw this image? lol
Originally, I wanted to keep Dorothea's little stuffed horse, white, and I wanted to draw a horn on it's head too! ;)

My daughter has a dolls house that she's gradually decorating room by room, and a while back she gave me some pieces of sticky backed 'carpet' that she had left over.
I thought it was about time I used some of it and Dorothea's little friend made me think that using an image with a cuddly toy on it would go perfectly with using some of this carpet.
I used a scalloped circle die to cut out the piece behind Dorothea, oooh it's really soft :)
I put the carpet over top of the card base, which had been embossed with a Cuttlebug Heritage folder first, then added the Stampin Up 'Sweet Always' paper strips at the bottom of the card, i'm guessing that this dsp has been discontinued now, as I bought mine years ago. I'm using strips here taken from my scraps tub.
Once I had the layout finished and had cut out Dorothea, I realised that a sandy coloured horse would look better than a white unicorn so that the carpet ties in with the card's design a little better (Emma didn't have any white carpet, or else it would definately have become a unicorn). So I got out my promarkers to colour it in.
The sentiment, as you probably guessed, is computer generated.
