Joanna Sheen

Good morning
It's Sunday and we have a brand new challenge over at Joanna Sheen. This fortnight our theme is.....
                                                      MUM'S THE WORD
There's a £15 voucher for one lucky winner.
Sheenie Towers sent me some gorgeous decoupage and a roll of washi tape for my card.  
I've never used washi tape before, the design was so pretty and it matched the colours in the image so I decided to make some backing paper from it! 
                                           
The green backing paper is from a First Edition pad. 
I used a Spellbinders edgeability die for the border, a marianne creatables die for the fence and a Martha Stewart punch for the little butterflies. 

I finished off with some ribbon and bling from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Creative Inspirations - Happy Mother's Day
Totally Gorjuss - For Mum
A Gem of a Challenge - Floral Frenzy
Dream Valley - Mothers Day

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today and for all your lovely comments. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. Lorraine x

Pretty card Lorraine and I had no idea you could make background paper from Washi tape and that is a neat idea. I really like how you have layered the flowers for dimension. It is a card any Mom would be happy to receive.
