WOJ #32 and Friday Sketchers # 54....Thanks for Being You!

Here is the card that I made today for the challenge over the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog! The challenge this week is a colour combo...Blue and Brown and I used the sketch over at Friday Sketchers for the layout!

I got this scrummy ribbon at Micheals and so I picked my paper to match it! I used more of the yummy papers in the My Minds Eye paper pack that I got at Winners...this time I used Wild Asparagus papers. The blue in the ribbon is more of a turquoise blue so I hope it still qualifies for the challenge. I used Shy Willow and the bowl of apples for this card. I am trying some new paper with my Copics. I bought the Bee Artist Marker pad at Curry's to try and I quite like it! I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my Copics markers. I ordered some new WOJ stamps and boy did they get here quickly! I used the 'em (they are on sale...just thought I would mention it, smile)!!!!

I Inked the edges of the papers with Distress inks and stamped the stitching with my Kelly Panacci Stitches stamps with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink!

To finish it off, I used a few Prima flowers, BG brads and gems from the dollar store that I coloured with my Copic marker to co-ordinate.

Here is the inside!!!

Hope you are having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
