Whiff of Joy challenge card

Don't know how I've missed the Whiff of Joy challenge blog when I daydream on the Whiff of Joy site daily LOL!!! But anyway I've found it now and here is my first entry to the challenge to Heather's gorgeous sketch. Really loved doing this sketch. I decided to do a bit of paper tearing and distressing with my new brown chalk pads, I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I have been very brave and used two....yes TWO of my best Prima flowers!!! The curled wire is from a handmade Christmas decoration I did a couple of years ago that didn't quite turn out how I wanted. The one inside is made from florist wire to match. I decided I simply couldn't use one of those flowers inside LOL so tried to make one to match. It is similar but not as good as the real thing! I have put liquid pearl dots round the brads on the flowers to make the flowers blend in with the colour scheme more. You can just see on the photo I have put a liquid pearl dot in the middle of the flowers in Melinda's hair, looks very effective.

Below are pictures of the inside of the card and my attempt at creating a flower to match the ones on the front!
