Whiff of Joy #1 / CCT #29


Hi there, happy Saturday to you all!! I have had the most fun ever making this card. I really didn't want to finish it - that's how much I was enjoying it. I have finally got my hands on some of the wonderful Whiff of Joy stamps and I am in my element. They are gorgeous ... I am in love and am going to have to get some more very, very soon!!! So, here it is ... my card for the very first Whiff of Joy challenge. For the first challenge we had a great sketch to follow by Katharina (who I still love even though I didn't make the DT - I'll be back in 2 months for the next call, lol!!!). This card came together so easy although it ended up completely different to how I originally planned it to be. I can't wait for next weeks challenge ... wonder what it will be?


Because I managed to get a few sparkly bits here and there, lol, I have also entered it for this weeks Cute Card Thursday which is 'lots of sparkle'. I added some enchanted gold EP to one of my flowers and it really changed the look of it - will deffo use this more on my brads and flowers as xmas approaches I think. I made the plaited ribbon by taking 3 colours of papermania's sparkling trims and errr... plaited them together.


Whiff of Joy 'Willow' coloured with prismas, papers from Anita's Classic Cristmas Red pack, Cuddly Buddly sentiment heat embossed with Gold EP, Papermania ribbon, Prima flowers, brads and gems from stash, glitter gel pens to colour holly on sentiment.
