Come Rain or Shine - Joanna Sheen Challenge DT Card

Hi Folks!

Sorry...totally confused on my days and could have sworn it was Saturday!!!!  Oops.

Here is my DT card for the new challenge over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge.  The theme for this one is Come Rain or Shine which means we want to see your weather orientated projects.  If you enter the challenge using a Joanna Sheen image then you are entered into the draw twice, and the prize is a £15 voucher to spend at the Joanna Sheen store...a fabulous prize.  So click on the link above and go and have a look at the fabulous inspiration by the DT. 

And here's my card:

Joanna and the team very kindly sent me the gorgeous House Mouse Designs - Autumn Leaves stamp set to use for this one.  Aren't those little guys just adorable?  My Jamie adores little Monica who is the little, tiny grey mousie over on the right.  

I've coloured the image using my Promarkers (really disorganised and didn't list them, sorry), then I cut the image out.

Using my MCS software, I used a digi kit from Just So Scrappy (link over on right) called Autumn Days for the papers.   I then did lots of cutting and matting and layering (using the three corresponding papers)and lay them out in one huge square (well...not THAT huge) and four little (faux matted and layered) squares.  Inside is decorated to match.

I have matted and layered the image in the same way and stuck it on, using foam pads for height, at a jaunty angle.

The sentiment was created in my MCS software too, and the leaves were cut from the papers using my Spellbinders Bella Rosa dies.

So head over to the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog and join us in a bit of crafty fun!

Take care and happy crafting!
