Roses - Jane Shasky

Good morning everyone and welcome to my two new followers Cindy and Lori, so glad to have decided to you join me.
Today's card is a commissioned one for a friend of someone I work with. She has had a few cards of mine over the past few years and I know her favourites are decoupaged ones. So what better than Jane Shasky's 'From the heart of the garden' cd from Joanna Sheen.
Before I found blogging I was really into decoupage and have dozens of cds but this is one of my favourites.

This is an 8x8 card and as you can see it is a big image but easy to cut out. The background papers are also from the cd. I added some Joy Craft corners and SB butterflies and the sentiment is computer generated and cut with the smallest SB Timeless rectangle.
Lace, ribbon (which irl is the same colour as the roses), pearls and gems from my stash.

This shows all the layers.

I added copious amounts of Diamond stickles to the flowers and Glamour dust to the butterflies

The inside shows the alternate backing paper.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look. 
(Another reminder that I do have Blogaversary candy up for grabs)

A real beauty Eileen. I have never done decoupage but I am afraid I wouldn't have the patience to cut all those fiddly bits out! Hugs Susan x
