Joanna Sheen DT cards

Hiya Everyone,

This is another of the Joanna Sheen sample cards that I made with the fab new "Tales of the ocean" stamp sets. The papers are from funky fairy gorjuss gingham downloads which you can sadly no longer get although Pink Petticoat does a similar download and their stuff is great when you are colour matching. The border is made up of my good old faithful swiss dots embossing folder. I have loads but use this one far more than any of the others. I glittered the image with stardust stickles glitterglue and used a few prima flowers. The lovely pearl brad is from a set made by the paper company and I have to remind myself that I bought them to use as I keep getting them out and putting them back in the box Lol. Why do we do this? Buy something pretty then feel bad if we use it. Does anybody else cringe when they take the first few papers from a crisp, new paperstack?

I hope it's not just me! :o)

I added the sentiment as I felt it needed one so I went with "make a splash!" as it seemed appropriate.

I will enter this into the following challenges:-

Creative cowgirls - Monochromatic
Gingerloft - Use flowers
One stitch at a time - Glitter and gems
Scrappy frogs - Good luck
House of Gilli - Pastel and bling

Cardmakin mamas - Animals
