Joanne(jojot) was selected by Trish to be our Queen for this week. Oh my, does Joanne have a VAST gallery filled with terrific cards....and she has been at it for a LONG time. I was truly amazed. So much inspiration to be had.
I was drawn to this CARD of Joanne's because I really liked how she had the bg panel meld into her main image one. I was experimenting with a technique, Velveteen Stamping, that I saw on Ellen Hutson's Classroom blog by Karolyn Loncon. I carried the houndstooth motif between the two panel. I changed the colors and images, but kept the leaf motif.
Congratulation, Joanne....a most deserved honor. I'm thrilled for you.

Sallie, this is so amazing! I don't think I have seen this technique, it is so interesting! I love how you both used leaves, but different seasons. The Houndstooth pattern would seem especially tricky, but you really made it look effortless! Incredible card and fabulous case!!!
