Down to the last 12 at the Joanna Sheen DT call!

See, miracles do happen! Yippee yie yay, I am down to the final 12 at the Joanna Sheen DT call. My understanding of this next part of the process is that we all got the same 3 sheets of backing paper and decoupage image from the Jane Shasky 'Heart of the Garden' CD with which to make a card. Only 3 sheets of backing paper!!!! I went pale and had a lie down!!

Anyhoo, this is what I came up with:

I made  a page book style card. The jute mesh, ribbon and flowers are from WOC, the beautiful leaves are a Marianne designs die and the dragonflies are Magnolia DooHickeys. I found the watering can charm in a pile of stash - a happy find but I really must organise my stuff!!

I used a piece of the decoupage  as a topper and added a butterfly (a Magnolia DooHickey). I used the X Cut Doily Heart border punch on some Kraft card to decorated the inner edges of the page book - I'm so glad I replaced the punch that went 'snap'!! The card is for a friend who loves to garden so I bought some seeds as a present and popped them in the book with some super cute pegs!!!

The 12 final entries are on the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog and bloggers get to leave their comments on their favourite entry. It would be lovely if you could visit the blog and have a look at the entries and give a thumbs up for your favourite!

I really appreciate you stopping by and having a look at my entry. A super big thank you to all the lovely ladies who left kind messages about my first CAS card (I was almost too embarrassed to post it!). I think it was the hardest card I've ever made - I'm not a natural! LOL!!!!

Good luck to all the ladies who made the final 12. I'm thrilled to have made it this far. Hope you have a great week, hugs, Jayne xx
