Joanna Sheen Challenge - Make it Sparkle - Halfway Reminder - and Some Sad News

Morning again! 

Not often I do two posts in one day but that's how it's worked out this time.  

We're back for a midway reminder over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog and Paula's hosting the second half of this challenge.  Not only that but she also has some very sad news for you.  In brief, this is the last challenge as the decision has been made to close it down. There is more information over on the blog.  We're all very sad about this as we've loved being part of the team and it's been such a wonderful challenge to be part of.  It's been so great having you all joining in with the fun and I've loved visiting your blogs.  Thank you all so much for your support over the last couple of years.  It's been a wonderful journey...but all good things come to an end eventually.  :o('s my final card for the Joanna Sheen Challenge
(please pass the tissues).

Well...I just had to use the little House Mouses for my last card, didn't I?  

I coloured this gorgeous image using the following promarkers:

Cool Grey 1 & 3, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Blush, Tea Grey, Grey Green, Baby Pink and Antique Pink.

I have added sparkle to the steam coming from the yummy cocoa using glitter.  

I have used the Christmas Wishes paper collection (love it!) from Bearly Mine Designs and matted that on to pink card which I printed to match the baby pink promarker.  

I printed the sentiment and cut the Memory Box Precious Mittens out of the same pink card.  

A few little bits of card candy finish it off.

The inside is decorated to match.  

Do pop over to the challenge to join in for one last time.  We'd really love to see your projects.  And leave us a comment to let us know how much you've appreciated the wonderful DT creations and all Paula's work over the last two years.  

Take care everyone and happy crafting!

  10. This card is even lovelier in the flesh!! The sparkly bits don't really show up in the photo. The colour matches, as usual, are spot on. A real keeper!!
