Summer Daze at Joanna Sheen Challenge


Tut! what pants! :(  I had just typed all my post out, and then blogger crashed, deleted it from drafts, and I lost all my links ...........and now the plot! :( grrrr!

Anyway, our new challenge over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge this time is 'Summer Daze' and I used this glorious Faye Whittaker decoupage sheet from a set called 'In the Garden'.  These really are a fabulous size and sooooo beautiful!  Its lovely sometimes to just sit cutting out, and I had a lot of fun with this.

I matted and layered lilac and white bazzil card,  and attached some flocked mesh with floral brads.  I dug out my flowersoft and added it to the beautiful bonnets and the lavender in the lane,  and used an MS punch for the borders.  This is an 8 x 8 scalloped card, so a really good size! :)  I hope you find time to play along and visit the rest of the DT too and see their wonderful creations!

I hope everyone has a smashing Sunday,

Hope the new arrival is settling in. Love those little bouquets you created - the white & lilac is a perfect backdrop for the images & I love the way the red & yellow of the little girl's dress under her pinafore is visible & becomes so eye-catching with the subtleness of the white & lilac.
