Whiff of Joy # 74...A sketch by Jane...My Sweet Friend!

Good morning crafty friends! I hope you all enjoyed the Easter weekend! I had Monday off work too and it was sooooo nice but it messed me up a little! I kept thinking it was Monday and not Tuesday all day long! Well, now it is Wednesday...I think I am clear on what day it is, smile...and that means it is WOJ Challenges Day! We had so many beautiful cards to look at from last weeks recipe challenge. Thank you so much for joining us and I hope you can join the fun this week as Jane has designed the most beautiful sketch! I just love it! I will definitely be using it again! If you are able to play along with us this week remember that the only rule is, you must use a Whiff of Joy image on your creation!

So here is my card I picked up this fabulous double sided Jillibean Soup paper at Crop Circles in Peterborough called Grandma's Christmas Soup...it is actually Christmas paper believe it or not! I loved it so much I decided to use it out of season. It made me think of home baked goods so I pulled out Willow with cookies to go along with it! I made my cardbase 6x6 from American Crafts cardstock and matted with some brown Damask AC cardstock. I stamped Willow on Neenah card and coloured her with my Copics and cut the image out with my Rectangle Nesties. I left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar Distress inks!

I am totally addicted to this great cotton lace trim that I found at the dollar store. It comes it several different widths and styles and I love this wide trim that I laced some thin brown satin ribbon through the holes! I added some Painterly Primas (my faves) and some buttons with twine and a sprinkling of pink half pearls. I cut the tab with a QK die from a scarp piece of Scenic Route paper and stamped the WOJ sentiment.

And here is the inside...I used another WOJ sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and having a peek at my card! I hope you get a chance to use Jane's beautiful sketch and to join us this week at Whiff of Joy Challenges! Go have a look at all the gorgeous creations by the WOJ DT too...they are sure to inspire you!
Have a stampin' great day!

Hi Tara, this card is absolutely fab! I love the colours you've chosen and that checked DP is stunning! I will have to check our stores for some. The lace piece looks very effective. I like it that you've threaded some ribbon through it. Take care, Sharon x
