DT call for Joanna Sheen -It's choosing time :)

Morning all, thank you for hopping to see, me if you are looking for my House Mouse post, please scroll down :)

Today I would like to show you my creation for my entry to the Joanna Sheen Design Team Call

The call is on a suggestions on favourites, so do hope you all take a minute to hop over and check out all the entrants and choose who you think should be on the Design Team

Remember you only have 1 week to comment so do hope you will hop, there is going to be some wonderfully talented creations to choose from.

The very talented Paula sent out the papers and image to be used by us all and again to see how we all create so differently.  So my card is as always for a purpose and that purpose is Matt's mum's birthday, she is into her gardening big style so I made a gift card with these lovely papers and the gorgeous decoupage sheet.

As this is photo heavy I will not go on to much as the images might do that for you, so grab a coffee and put your feet up for five

 This is the creation whilst closed. I made some trellis doors with creeping vines and flowers running up them.  I tied it through the eyelets with garden string, seemed the best thing to do, as ribbon just would not cut the mustard.

Once you open the gift card up, this is the left hand side with the lovely sentiment and just a peek of the inner

and the right side the writing panel

and finally the inner, now imagine the potting shed, the cupboards at either sides holding the all important garden items, the picture on the wall and not any old picture a decoupaged one no less, and on the shelf some of those lovely potted roses that you potted up earlier on in the year.

A couple of close ups, the left hand side of the decoupage looks like those seed packets fit in that slot between the pots really well.

and not sure if you can see it but the silver chain holds the picture frame up on the wall.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this over the week, here is a composition photo and then I will try explain what has been used
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, tinged with Tim Holtz olive distress ink.
Sentiments - nestie frames, distressed again with the olive
Cheery Lynn die for the trellis
All boxes and shelves hand made
Potted flowers from Lidl and are dolls house bits
eyelets, string and little sticky dots
think that about covers it

anyway thank you for looking and as always thank you for hopping by and leaving me some love, which means I can come give some hugs back to you.
