Joanne Sheen DT call...On the shortlist of 12....

Hiya all....Hope you are all well.....I have some exciting news to share today....

 I recently applied for the Joanne Sheen DT call and guess what.... I have made the shortlist of 12 prospective new DT members still in shock now lol...

All 12 of us were sent a Joanne Sheen decoupage image and some papers from the Jane Shasky "from the heart of garden" 2 CD Rom set to make our Creation.If you pop over to the Joanne Sheen Challenge blog you can see what the other 11 prospective new DT members have made, all of them are so gorgeous and of such a high standard....Going to be so hard for Paula & the team to pick just 3 of us to join the very talented design team...Good luck Paula.

I really enjoyed making my card with this wonderful image and gorgeous papers, it made a pleasant change to do some decoupage again, been a while since doing any. I used the fabulous Martha Stewart punch around the page called Cherish to frame the image and made the flowers using MFT Die-namics die Pretty Posies, love this die so much.The leaves are a Marianne die.







I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #204 ~ Distressing
DigiDesigns Challenges ~ Use more than 1 Die cut or punch (3rd entry)
Whimsy Stamps inspiration challenge #51 ~ Anything Goes (2nd entry)


I would love it if you could pop over to the Joanne Sheen Challenge blog  to see all our projects and leave any comments you may wish....The comments section will be open for 1 week only,  then Paula & team  will gather all the feedback to help them in their decision on choosing the new design team members....Thanks so much.

Good luck to all the girls on the shortlist, just can't believe I am their with you.

Wish me luck...think I'm going to need it lol..
Hugs.....
