Whiff of Joy # 64...A sketch by Gio....Love Letter!


Good morning crafty friends! I am so glad that you could pop by! We have a new challenge over on the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog today and Gio has designed a beautifully balanced sketch that I just love and will be sure to use again! The DT has made just gorgeous creations to inspire you! So, be sure to check them out over at the WoJ Challenge blog and hopefully you can join the challenge too!

So, for this card I made my cardbase 6x6 from this fabulous new American Crafts cardstock that I've just discovered. I just love the fab colours and great texture! I also cracked open my brand new pad of BG Sugar Rush too and teamed it up with this adorable image form the new Whiff of Joy January release called Happy Mail! This is Charlotte on Carpet and I coloured her with my Copics, of course!!!! I cut the image out with my Nesties and left the image in the die and used Distress inks to colour the background! To finish things off I used some American Crafts ribbon, Prima flowers with BG brads in the centres, and some bling sprinkled here and there. Oh, I also pulled out my QuicKutz collection and used this cute heart die.

Here is the inside...both sentiments are from the WoJ new release and come with Charlotte riding Pigeon!

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek! I hope you can join us at the Whif of Joy challenge this week!

Have a stampin' great day!

Hugs,
