DT Card for Joanna Sheen Challenge - Anything goes except Christmas


Good Morning to you all, I hope you are having a great weekend.

Today I'm here to tell you about the new Joanna Sheen Challenge. The theme for the next 2 weeks is

Anything Goes  - Excluding Christmas !

as usual the wonderful prize is a £15 voucher to spend in the Joanna Sheen online shop.

I was nice to have a break from making Christmas cards although I have to admit I do love making them.
For this challenge I was sent some Joanna Sheen Haberdashery Sewing Machine stamps. It's a fabulous set with lots of images to choose from.
I used the sewing machine and cotton reel images from the same set.


Items used:
Ink Stamp ~ Joanna Sheen Haberdashery Sewing machine coloured with Promarkers
Lili of the valley corner swirls
Papers ~ First Edition Noir et Chic 
Memory Box Corner Bow die
Buttons from stash

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


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
The Artistic Stamper  - Anything Goes
Emergency Crafters - Anything goes
The Stamping Shack - Anything Goes


Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my cards this week, you really are so kind and it helps my confidence so much.

Bye for now
Hugs

Oh dear me! Sue, this card is exquisite! The images are gorgeous and the design is stunning. The papers are some of the most beautiful I've seen.. I've never seen that paper pad, so I'm hoping it's new and not retired! I must have it. ;) The wooden buttons are incredible. This masterpiece (yes, I'm using that word again because it's true) perfectly showcases why so many people want you on their teams. :o) You bring every element to life in the most lovely way. :o) Oh the joy in visiting you! :o) This card is one of my favorites of yours!
