Whiff of Joy challenge

I am still so excited I can't stop smiling! Thank you Iris!!

Here is my entry for the Whiff of Joy challenge this week. My Mum asked me to make a card for her to give to my Aunt and had chosen one of my new summer kit stamps to go on it so decided to combine her request with the challenge. I had already bought some papers in my Aunt's favourite colours to make the card, which are quite autumnal but I think it works with the stamp quite well in the end. I got some copic paper and this is my first image using it but I don't think I like it, the colours don't seem as blendable as on the card I was using so think I will go back to the card from now on.

I used liquid pearls in gold to make the swirl as I thought the red paper looked too plain.

This is the inside of the card.
