Digital Two for Tuesday 59

This week we have two fun and different images.  Both are from the vintage book In Storyland which has turned out to be a treasure trove of images.  I challenged our wonderful guest hostess Dorcas with these images and she came up with the beautiful card below. I know I say it often but each time our guest host awes me with their talent and Dorcas is no exception. 
Here is her bio in her own words.  "Hi! My name is Dorcas and I'm so happy to host today. A little bit about me: I am married to a very patient man and together we have a 12 year old daughter whom I home school. We share our country home with two cats and seven ducks here in North Carolina..I've been crafting for many years but have found my niche with card making and just love it so much!


I chose the cottage as the focus of my card making today.My husband is English and we lived in London for almost 7 years before moving to the States. It wasn't often we were able to venture out of the city but when we did we loved to explore the small villages round about. Needless to say I just love cottages to bits! On my card I have used Prismacolor pencils, K&Co papers, Celebrate It Ribbon, and embellishments by Recollection.  Grab your digis and go have some fun!"

You can see more of Dorcas's artwork on her blog http://dorcasdesigns.blogspot.com/.
Won't you take the challenge this week and make something beautiful with our challenge images.  If you do.  don't forget to post a link in the comments section of this post.
