Joanna Sheen DT call

Hi all,
Back in August a DT call was made for the Joanna Sheen challenge blog.
I decided to enter and was delighted to be picked as one of the top twelve :)
Today our makes will be put on show and the followers will help to choose the top three.
 I made a card with a recessed window. I have never made one of these before but thought I should do something outside my comfort zone. I decoupaged the garden picture and popped it in the recess and decorated the front with flowers from Wild orchid crafts. They are Gardenias, Carnations, Roses, Cherry blossom, Gypsophila and pearl stems.

close up of flowers. 

The flourish is from Marianne designs and the little butterfly from my stash. The sentiment is Lili of the valley, the leaves are a MS punch.

Here you can see the layers of decoupage which I had printed onto Crafter's companion paper. You can just see that I added twine around the trowel as well.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and maybe you can pop over to Joanna Sheen to take a look at the other creations. If you like my card don't forget to leave a comment over there and maybe I will chosen in the top three,
