Whiff of Joy and Pink Elephant Challenges


The theme this week on the Whiff of Joy Challenge is to use this fabulous sketch by Katharina :-) The stamps I've used are in the new Whiff of Joy spring collection, lovely aren't they :-) Even the little butterfly is in the collection, I added vellum wings and glitter to make them 'pop' up a little bit.
The DP are Diane's Daughter's rustic gem and CK vintage vine glitter paper. The base card is brown, I also used cream card which I chalked with brown to give it a distressed look, the narrow strip behind the main image was also embossed using a cuttlebug folder. The lace ribbon was from my local haberdashery. The flower is by hero arts and the sentiment is a gift from Jenny

Thanks for looking, your comments are appreciated :-)

A beautiful card - I'm still waiting for my set of stamps from Whiff of Joy - it's killing me as they are supposed to have been despatched. Ah well perhaps tomorrow.

Love your cat card too - the pearls are a lovely touch.

Thanks for joining the challenge at the Pink Elephant this week - it's great to see your work.
