Layer it Up! at the Joanna Sheen Challenge


Good Morning everyone.
I hope you are all having a good weekend. 
Sorry I haven't added anything to my blog for a few days. All my DT cards are due in the same week and as last week was half-term I didn't have any spare time to make any other cards. It has been so nice to spend some time with my children this week, I will miss them when they go back to school tomorrow.

Today is the start of a new Joanna Sheen Challenge
This time our theme is
Layer it Up!

The prize for the lucky winner is a £15 voucher to spend online at Joanna Sheen

I was sent the fabulous House Mouse Projects CD Rom. After much deliberation, I printed off this wonderful image to decoupage.
I enjoy cutting out, which is just as well as there are 6 layers here!! This is one of those cards that looks so much better in real life.

Items Used:
Decoupage image and sentiment -  Joanna Sheen House Mouse Projects CD Rom 
Papers - LOTV Nitwits Promises
Memory Box corner bow
Buttons from stash

If you take a look on the Joanna Sheen Challenge you will 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:
Crafty Ribbons - button up
ABC Challenge - All stitched up
Allsorts - Animals
Cutie Pie Challenge - Pretty Pastels 

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog today, it really means so much to me.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend
bye for now
Hugs to you all

Sue

Oh wow Sue, this is just awesomely stunning. So love the colours and little finishing touches. The House Mouse range has got so much character, a pity one cant purchase the images in digital format.

My dear friend, this is gorgeous! So many layers, all well-worth the time invested... the image looks amazing. I love the border you created with tie die and buttons! That and all of the sewing tie together so perfectly with the lovely scene. I always appreciate your attention to detail like that. :o) Fantastic work as always, Sue! I'm glad you've had extra time with the family. That's far more important than crafting every day anyway. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
