From the Heart of the Garden

This is the card that I made for my other son to give his Grandmother for her birthday, this time I used Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky From the Heart of the Garden CD.


I used a gorgeous decoupage image and co-ordinating papers that were also from the CD.


I computer generated the sentiment and added some ribbon from my stash.


You can see some of the many decoupage layers in this photograph - it's a good job this card didn't need to go in the post.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Digitally Sweet Challenge 150 - Digital Birthday Cards
The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Birthdays
Simply Papercraft Challenge 27 - Anything Goes
My Sheri Crafts Challenge 181 - Let's go 3D
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 303 - We Want To See Three or More Layers

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

It's beautiful with all those layers and dimension! I haven't made many decoupage layered cards, I admire your patience because from my experience it can be quite fiddly... It's a very classy design.
