Whiff of Joy # 73...A Recipe Challenge...Take time to smell the flowers!

Hey Crafty friends! I hope you are having a great week! It is Wednesday and that means we are a little closer to the weekend! I am looking forward to having the extra days off as I really need to catch up on some sleep and I am looking forward to chocolate too, smile!
Well, it is also Whiff of Joy Challenges day and I have to say that I saw soooo many gorgeous cards with Bev's you all really out did yourselves! This week we have a recipe challenge...I always love the recipes challenges, myself...we would like to see you use 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 papers...and please remember to use a Whiff of Joy image on your creation!

My card this week is rather is still growing on me, so to speak, as I 'm not so sure I like what I did here but I soooo love this sweet, sweet image!!! I'm totally in love with all the new WOJ spring Gnomes by Norma Fickel...they are absolutely darling! I especially love this one Girl and her Lamb! I'd always get a stuff animal at Easter when I was little and I got a darling stuffed Lamb one Easter, just like the one in this image, that I called Lambchop, smile.

For my card I made the base 6x6 from American Crafts cardstock and used this adorable 3 Bugs in a Rug paper called Savannah. I stamped the Whiff of Joy image on Neenah card and coloured it with my Copics, cut the image with my Nesties and left the image in the die and inked with Broken China and crushed Olive Distress inks. I added some Sakura Stardust pen and spread it around with my finger so there is just a light sparkle on the flowers and I added a few half pearls. I love this cute American Crafts ribbon and my buttons are cut out of cardstock with a QuicKutz die. The sentiment is a Kelly Panacci rub-on. I thought it went well with this image as it looks like the girl is holding the wee lamb up to take a sniff of the pretty flowers,lol!!!

Here is the inside...the sentiments is by C.C. Designs.
well, I hope you can join us this week and please go and see all the fabulous creations the Whiff of Joy Challenge DT have created to inspire you!
Have a stampin' great day!
