DT Card for Joanna Sheen Challenge - Down in the Garden

Good Morning my wonderful friends and blogging buddies.
I hope you are all having a good weekend.

Today is the start of a new Joanna Sheen Challenge.
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is

Down in the Garden

so that could be
animals found in the garden, flowers, fruits or even fairies!
whatever fits the challenge.

As usual, the fabulous prize for the lucky winner is a £15 Joanna Sheen Gift voucher.

I was sent a set of Joanna Sheen's beautifully detailed Country Kitchen stamps to use. I decided to make a Criss Cross style card so I could use the recipe image included in the set.
This really is a detailed image and was great fun to colour.




Items Used:
coloured with Polychromo pencils
Martha Stewart PATP rings
Papermania Kraft Card
Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterflies
Papers- freebies from magazines

If you pop over to the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog your will be able to see the wonderful creations by the rest of the design team and also see who were the winners of the last challenge.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:
Simon Says Stamp Anything goes




Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog today, I really do appreciate your support and encouragement.
Bye for now
hugs
