Anything with flowers.......

The through the purple haze second challenge was anything with flowers,  so I have used some images from my house mouse decoupage sheets and a sheet printed from a one of my Joanna sheen cd's.

For this one I used a lilac card and matted purple mirri board on to it.
I then cut out  the decoupage sheet and matted  on to a sheet of green gingham paper.
To finish I used coloured some silver leaves with a green pro-marker, then added two paper white flowers and added two small purple buttons in the middle of the flowers.
A sentiment was then added to the top left hand corner

Like the above card I started with a lilac card blank.  I then printed out the decoupage sheet and a backing sheet from a Joanna sheen cd.
I wrapped a piece of piece of lilac organza ribbon, and a small piece of lilac ribbon around the backing paper and attached to the front of the card.  
I then made up the decoupage and stuck to left hand side of the card.
and then finished off with a vertical happy birthday peel off

Thanks for taking the time to read please come back again,

I seen your name and had to check you out... Lisa my promotional coodinator will be contacting you if she hasn't already... I will certainly tell her I was by and loved your work!! hugs

  2. Melanie it is I again, hehe...I just noticed you have to type a word and a number in in order to comment... I know from experience that you will not get many comments as you should because of this... when I got rid of mine I could not believe the difference..not that I get a lot, lol. I was lucky enough to have someone tell me this so I am paying it forward.. of course it is up to you. I found this article I think will make you chuckle but give you a better understanding...

  7. Your cards are lovely but I've had to delete your entry into the Joanna Sheen Challenge as no back-linking is allowed as our challenge went live on the 29th July and your cards were post to your blog on the 22nd which was before our challenge started which is not allowed.

    I hope to see you enter in the future though!
