Whiff of Joy Guest DT Call

>> Friday, 23 July 2010

This is so typical of me, I was going to enter this card in the Whiff of Joy Guest DT call but I've just noticed that it closed 4 hours ago! Honestly, you'd think I'd have learnt to read things properly by now!! Oh well, here's the card anyway. The theme was 'summer' so I used some Basic Grey Green at Heart papers which I think are very summery.

I've used my favourite Willow image and coloured her with distress inks. The flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Craft roses plus I punched some flowers from mesh and jute for a bit of extra texture. The layout I used is this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge.

My work colleague is retiring next week so I think I will give this card to her. We've worked together for 5 years and I'm really going to miss her.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I'm not sure what the weather forecast is but we are going to a barbeque on Sunday so fingers crossed it stays dry.

Oh Sharon this is such a winner in my eyes! I love the soft purples that you used for the distress inks and the flowers all match so beautifully! As always...a treat to visit your posts!!!
Here it is going to be a hot weekend...we have my sons soccer tournament....have fun at your barbecue!!!!
