Joanna Sheen Challenge - Down in the garden

Hiya everyone, 

It's time again over at the Joanna Sheen challenge blog for a brand new challenge which is

Down in the garden

It's actually Team B's challenge (I'm Team leader on Team A) but as we are still a few DT members down till we take on some new ones I thought I'd fill the gap a little by making an extra card.

The stamp I have used here is from the Joanna Sheen Favourite flowers stamp set "Wild roses" which you can get here.  I have stamped out the image several time and layered it up and it really pops off the card!  I have coloured it in very subtly with my promarkers and flexmarkers.  
The papers are from the Prima paperstack which came with the most recent Simply cards and papercraft magazine.   I went a little OTT with this card as I really wanted to try out my new kraft card and new dies.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out as I don't often colour in flowers and there is a lot of different textures going on!
We are holding an Autumn Blog-hop tomorrow where we have lots of fab prizes up for grabs - the Star Prize being a set of 4 Autumn House Mouse stamps!!!
Don't forget to pop along to the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog from 12 noon to hop along with me and the rest of the DT!

Thanks for looking!
