Whiff of Joy City Girl Collection

Here is another card I have made with Willow Dressing Up from Whiff of Joy's City Girls collection. I really do love this collection! I have used BoBunny papers. I've made several cards with the same collection of papers, it is the first time I've done this and I have to say I'm amazed at the different looks I have got with the same papers. I'm so bad with papers normally. I make a card with them and then the rest goes in the drawer never to be seen again LOL! I distressed the edges of the papers and inked with Weathered Wood distress ink and stickles.

I have coloured Willow with distress inks. I'm getting torn now between whether I want to use copics or distress inks. I can't decide which look I like best! I've added stickles to the trims on her dress and her jewellery and also around the edges of the image.

The flowers are a mixture of Prima and punched flowers. The stunning flower buttons in the centre are from The Hobby House, I threaded them with some coordinating thread tied some bows. I couldn't resist adding some more of these buttons as little flowers on their own with gems in the centres. They add a fantastic sparkle to the card!
The ribbon and gems are also from the Hobby House and I have used EK success diamond scallop edge punch for the horizontal strip.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Enjoy your weekend! x
