Joanne Sheen Blog Hop

Good morning to you in the land of blog
Today I would like to show you a piece that I created for the 
Joanna Sheen blog hop,
 after being asked along with many other talented crafters to join the hop as a Guest, by the very talented Paula.

This is my second post for today, please scroll down for my Winter Wonderland inspirational piece.

Now Paula gave us all the same papers to use with our image so the 
 image requested to use was 

House-Mouse Designs Autumn Rubber Stamps - Tumble JSHM020

and the papers

The idea behind this hop is to see the diversity of use of different crafters with the same papers and image.
You can read all about the Hop here on the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog.
The hop starts on Mon 1st October and will run till 8pm Sunday 7th October.  

The STAR prize for the blop hop is this amazing setof all 4 Autumn House Mouse stamps

Each DT member will also be giving away a smaller individual prize of Autumnal ribbons and a fab selection of leafy charms.
The winner(s) will be announced on Monday 8th October
Each DT member will announce their winners on their blogs and
 the STAR Prize winner on the main Joanna Sheen challenge blog
So if you have not already do hop over to the
Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog
would hate you to miss out!!

So here is my take on the papers and image requested to use, but you can see many more on the main challenge site starting yesterday and running every day, all different styles with the same image and papers
I got these wonderful leaf dies from our local garden centre a while ago, and thought they would be perfect for an Autumnal creation.

I went for the browns with a little tinge of orange.
The base is a 6.75 inch PATP square, folded in half and distressed with TH antique linen
I chose three papers from the selection and used a deep brown card as the base layer and contrast.
The image plate has been distressed also.
I added an MS punched edge to wrap my dotty brown ribbon around to tie in a little bow at the front.  Added some beautiful lace from Wild Orchid Crafts under this.  Added a little Autumnal coloured rose and two leaf charms along with a selection of pearls.  Ribbon and pearls from the Hobby House.

Here is the close up of the image, coloured in copics.

and a close up of the little leaf charms, may have to get some more of these and that lovely tiny pretty lace too.

I would like to say hello to my new followers, and thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
Anything Goes - Animals
Loves Rubber Stamps - All About Autumn
Paper Pretties - Fall Inspiration
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Leaf Inspiration

This is absolutely wonderful in every way. Great card shape, awesome die cuts, and super papers all combine together to make that image shine (actually, it could probably shine on its own with your wonderful coloring, but you made it shine even more). I really, really like this.
