Whiff of Joy Challenge - Heather's sketch

We have a gorgeous sketch for you this week by the very talented Heather! Also, the winner of this week's challenge will be our guest designer for October! For my card I have used the cute Willow with Baby Turkey, I just love the way her hair and apron are blowing in the breeze! I have distressed all the edges of the papers with tattered rose distress ink. I used lace instead of paper for one of the elements, and I have resized the piece behind the image so it still shows.

I added a gorgeous butterfly charm hanging from a bit of string I recycled from a jeans label.

I have added some gorgeous blossoms and roses which have all been spritzed with pearl glimmer mist.

The sentiment is from the Whiff of Joy autumn kit too, stamped with espresso coloured ink and the edges distressed with tattered rose.

I hope you like my card and can join in with us this week. The rest if the team have some gorgeous cards to inspire you! x
