Whiff of Joy DT sneak peek meets 3 challenges!!!

Here is my final sneak peek from the stunning new Whiff of Joy collection - City Girl, being released on 4th February. This is the ever so sophisticated Willow with Champagne. This is such a useful stamp I think as it could be used for prom cards, wedding cards, 21sts, and anything girly!! I have also managed to combine this card for 3 challenges: Colour Create challenge who have the gorgeous colour combo of soft pink, soft blue, white and silver; Quixotic challenge who would like to see butterflies (easy one for me as I LOVE butterflies; and Cute Card Thursday where the challenge is blooming gorgeous (ie flowers)!!! I have coloured Willow with copics and added some stickles to the detail on her dressand the bubbles in her champagne. Around the edge of the image I have stamped a grunge stamp from Stempelglede with Weathered Wood distress ink and added stickles to that too! The gorgeous pale blue paper is from K&Co and the soft pink paper is Basic Grey. I have stamped the Stempelglede stamp around the edges of the blue paper too.
The gorgeous pink lace was a bargain find at my local haberdashery store - 40p for 3m!!! I have added a thin silver ribbon and a butterfly charm from the Hobby House. The pink rose is from Hobby Craft and the white ones are from Wild Orchid crafts, all sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The gorgeous pink paper flower is by Prima. I have added some leaves and butterflies to my flower spray punched with Woodware leaf punch and MS Monarch butterfly punch. The tiny pearls are from my stash. Well that's the whole collection now - gorgeous aren't they!? Katharina is also starting preorders for the spring kit on 1st February and this time she is letting us all see them before we order!! Can't wait for that one! I will be back tomorrow with a little candy - one of these gorgeous City Girl stamps will be up for grabs!! Have a great weekend and thanks for looking x

Stunning cards I love it, can I ask what size the roses are you buy from wild orchids, keep meaning to place order but not sure what sizes work best for the cards.
