Everything for the garden

This card wasn't exactly made for a challenge but it did have to be made in a bit of a hurry! It was one of the samples I made for Joanna Sheen's new CD 'Cottage Garden' which will be showing on Create & Craft on Sunday 18th from 2 - 4 pm.

It was a fantastic CD to work from and I had such fun with it. There are some gorgeous images on it of cottages, gardens, etc. etc.

I picked this image as it appealed to me as being a bit different from the rest. I printed the main image out 4 times on satin paper and decoupaged it on to a linen-effect card printed with the co-ordinating backing paper and then embellished it with lots of little seed packets (from a sheet of embellishments on the CD) printed on matt paper.

Obviously the ideal card for a gardening friend.

I hope you like it -- I'm off now to search for another challenge!

  2. Lovely card Ali, I hadn't realised you were one of Joanna's sample makers. I always admire the work you all do when Joanna shows the cards on C & C
