DT card for Joanna Sheen Challenge - Going Dotty!


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

Today is the start of a new Joanna Sheen Challenge and for the next two weeks the theme is 

Going Dotty!

So, this is my first card as part of the wonderful Design Team who have made me feel so welcome. 
I was sent some gorgeous Jayne Netly Mayhew Decoupage sheets from her Winter Collection and some lovely spotty ribbon. As you may know, I enjoy using decoupage on my cards. What you may not know is that I LOVE penguins so this card was so much fun for me to make!

Sorry the picture isn't too brilliant, I added lots of glamour dust all round the edges of the layers and on the die cut border. Also there is a layer of glittery vellum , it is just a shame it doesn't show up on my photo.


Here's a close up of those adorable penguins, look at them all huddled together in the background!

Items Used:
Items available from Joanna Sheen :
Jayne Netley Mayhew decoupage - Winter Collection
Memory Box - Frostyville border
Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder

Other items used:
Martha stewart PATP - vintage floral
Papermania frosty vellum
Crystal gems for Mei flower
Charm from stash


If you look at the Joanna Sheen challenge blog you will be able to see the wonderful creations made by the rest of the design team


I would like to enter this card into the following fabulous challenges:

Sparkles Christmas Challenge  sparkle and bling
Saturday Challenge - Animal Antics
Crafty Mess - Animals with a blue theme
Penny's Paper Craft Challenge - Sparkle and Shine

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog today, your support and encouragement really means a lot to me.
Bye for now
Hugs

Hi Sue - thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, you are kind. I didn't manage to blog yesterday so I would like to comment on yesterday's card - I noticed it in the Ladybug DT cards and thought it was so gorgeous. I have quite a few La Blanche stamps and this one is lovely. I shall be having a go at the challenge.

I love your penguins as well although I am not a devotee of decoupage, I have been known to decoupage a little if I have the right stamp! lol.

Hugs to you Sue P xx

This is such a sweet Christmas card, Sue! How adorable are those penguins?! What a fantastic showcase of your DT products. I love the beautiful wintry landscape, 'snowy' ribbon, and of course all of the sparkle. :o) It is a shame these types are so difficult to photograph, but rest assured we still see its beauty. :o) Stunning work, Sue. They are blessed to have you!

Hugs and blessings!
