Whiff of Joy DT meets a Spoonful of Sugar challenge

Another sneak peek for you today! Not long now before you can get your hands on this gorgeous collection from Whiff of Joy. They are being released on Saturday!!! Which one is your favourite so far?? I have to say I don't think I can choose, they're all so cute! On today's card I have used two stamps from the collection, Charlotte kissing pidgeon and Happy Mail desk, which I have masked together. I got my wonderful craft goodies arrived on Tuesday. Hubby bless him, I think his eyes glaze over when I talk craft stash, so he gave me some money to spend on it instead! So, Tuesday evening I used as much of my new stash as possible LOL! The papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer, one of my new goodies, distressed with Tattered rose distress ink. I am entering this into the Spoonful of Sugar challenge as their theme this week is hearts.
I have coloured the images with copics and a gold gel pen for Charlotte's necklace. The edges of the image have been sponged with tattered rose distress ink also. Now for another of my new toys....the edges underneath my image have been punched with my MS punch around the page punch! Gorgeous isn't it! Sorry but I think you'll be bored of seeing it before I'm bored of using it LOL!
The small roses are from Wild Orchid crafts and the large one is from Hobby Craft, all have been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. Notice the leaves?? another new toy LOL McGill fern punch. I have punched them with green cardstock and inked the edges with brushed cordoruy distress ink.
The pins are from Tabbycrafts.
A graphic sentiment for this card - a grungeboard heart painted with picket fence crackle paint and a die cut "U" coloured with a gold gel pen - to represent "love you".
Hope you like it and thanks so much for looking x
EDITED TO ADD....CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE? Does anyone know where I can purchase 6x6" card blanks and envelopes? (appart from the little packs of 10 that are a fortune) I've been using the 5.25" but they're a bit small to fit much on! Thanks x

Jane I get the back2Basics 6x6 cards and envelopes from Craftwork Cards, they are brilliant, I have used them for a long time. They come in packs of 50. Another supplieris Fred Aldous Ltd, but I can't remember if they cost more or less, but they are quicker. You might want to compare postage though. Judith x
