I am sooo late in posting this .... I haven't been very well : (      enough moaning lol 

This weeks LEJ Challenge is 'Celebrate'   
I saw this gate on LEJ blog and loved it ..... it reminded me of a gate that would lead you to a walled garden .... the perfect place to have a celebratory garden party ....
I cut the image in half so I could have it so the gates opened .... Then I feel it all went wrong 

I tried doing a garden scene but I didn't think it worked .... I wanted to add something other than the PARTY banner but no matter what I tried it just wouldn't work so I ended up leaving it like this ...... 
BUT I am VERY VERY unhappy with the inside and feel that I have not done justice to Lindsey's beautiful gate (but the image I had in my head was FAB .... wish you could all see in there ) ..... so Lindsey I apologise for my terrible effort for this challenge : ( 

thank you for stopping by and I hope I am forgiven for my terrible card ....

YAY My 1st Design Team Project 

My very first DT project for eclecticellapu   

The theme was self made flowers ... doesn't matter what you make them from or what you use them for just make them .... how cool is that ... so on to my project 

 I decided I wanted to wear my flowers so I stamped onto some canvas(using stayzon black ink and heat set it with my heat tool)  that i had left over from stretching a canvas to paint on (soooo glad I kept the scraps ... I KNEW I was right NEVER to throw anything away LOL )  then I put the canvas through my big shot using the Tim Holtz die 'Tattered Florals'   Before assembling the Jewellery I coated the flowers (both sides) with Mod Podge to make it much more durable. 
I poked a hole in the center of the 2 flowers and put a brad through ... I used the back of the brads to fasten the flowers to the leather cord ... and the one for the chain I used 1 on the arms of the brads to make a loop to go around the chain .... 

Hope you like what i have done and thank you as always for stopping by
