Whiff of Joy Challenges # 92...A sketch by Me and WOJ Challenges DT Call!

Good morning crafty friends! I hope you're all having a great week so far! It is Wednesday my fave day as it is almost the weekend,lol! It is also time for a fun challenge over at Whiff Of Joy Challenges and this week we have a sketch by little ol' me, eekkk, hope you like it! I hope you can join us and give my sketch a go! Please visit the WOJC DT as they all have gorgeous creations sure to inspire you! Remember to please use a WOJ stamp to be eligible for the prize.

Here is my sketch....

Now, on a sad note, I have decided it is time to stepped down from the WOJ challenges DT and this challenge is my last DT Challenge but I am sure not my last WOJ challenge.  I have soooooo enjoyed my time on the WOJ Challenges team, with such a fabulous and talented group of ladies! So,  we are having a WOJC DT call to add to the why not join in just add the letters DT after your name!
 I have had this idea for this card for a while as I really wanted to use Business Willow with these Melissa Frances rub-ons. I thought this would be a great card for a friend who just landed the dream job or big promotion at work. So for my card, I pulled out my beloved Echo Park Life is Good pp and I stamped up Business Willow and coloured her with my Copics.

I made a crinkled seam binding bow with seam binding I dyed and crinkled myself. It was originally white Hug Snug seam binding but I spritzed it with water and Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist (you might want to wear gloves unless you like having red fingers,smile). Then I crinkled it all up in a ball and squished it into the corner of a plastic sandwich bag, secured it with an elastic band and let it sit overnight. The next day, I took it out and let it air dry as it was still a bit damp and there you have it....crinkled seam binding...super easy! Really you only need to get white seam binding if you have a large selection of Glimmer Mist and you can dye your own in any colour. I also added a few Prima flowers and some half pearls here and there.

Here is the inside sentiment...

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you get some crafty time over the next two weeks and can join us at the WOJ Challenges....try my sketch and enter the DT call!

Have a stampin' great day!

Thought you had rather a lot on your plate. Love that ribbon threaded lace across the top & that gloriously decorated inside. I had to laugh - I have had red fingers today - with white resist & Barn Door Red!
