Whiff of Joy Challenge

>> Friday, 2 October 2009

Yay, its Friday!  My favourite day of the week as I don’t work and I reserve Friday evenings as my craft time.  The gorgeous weather continues in the South East although its definitely getting colder and I’ve been up into the loft to bring down the winter duvet.  Thomas has had a great week but has turned into an escapologist.  He slipped through a narrow gap in the fence into our neighbours garden yesterday!  Luckily they were in and he ended staying a while to play with their children!

Onto my card and its been a while since I made a really girly, flowery card.  There is a lovely sketch for this weeks WOJ challenge and I cut into these gorgeous Melissa Frances papers which I bought at the Craft Barn last week.


My image is coloured with distress inks and I made the three vintage paper flowers using the technique in Rach’s tutorial.  Other embellishments are organza ribbon, lace and stick on pearls and the sentiment is from Papermania.

Sharon this is stunning! I love purples and plaid paper so this card is awesome 100% in my books! I love the colouring in distress inks. I think I am going to look into those. Are they easy to work with? As you make it look so beautiful and easy to do!
