A Relaxing Day

This is my second DT post today, you can find my Ooh La La Creations card HERE.

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is:  All about Summer hosted by Natascha - a nice easy one for you, just make sure you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image to join in.

I've used a fabulous decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Designs Silly Summer Decoupage sheets and papers from Joanna's Jayne Shasky CD and Pink Petticoat.


The decoupage image on the sheet is actually square and very large, as I wanted to make a smaller card I decided to cut it out using a Spellbinders circle die and mount it onto a Kraft scalloped circle. The border is a Fiskars edge punch and the flower is a Tim Holtz die.


The sentiment is part of the decoupage sheet and the button and twine are from my stash.

This fortnight we are sponsored by
