Whiff of Joy City Girl Collection

Morning! Today I have another card with those BoBunny papers to show you. This time I've used Willow Dressing Up. I wanted a sophisticated look for this card! The edges of the paper have been distressed with weathered wood distress ink and stickles and I have added gems along both edges for some sparkle and yes that punch jumped into my hand again LOL!!!
I have coloured Willow with Distress inks and added some stickles to parts of her dress and jewellery. I created a fancy frame for the image using EK success swirl punch. Really pleased with how it turned out, I think it looks like a fancy photograph frame LOL!
How gorgeous is this ribbon and slider?? Both are from The Hobby House. It is the first time I've used a ribbon slider but will definitely using them again they add such an elegant touch to cards!!
Thank you for all the wonderful comments you leave, I really do appreciate every single one even if I don't manage to get round to visiting you back! Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

A very elegant card Jane and love the 'photo frame' too. At first I thought it was a frame. Then I realised that the 'golden' punch had crept back onto the table! When I was pregnant I ate hundreds of poached eggs. Now I can't eat them at all. So beware - one punched swirl too many and you'll never swirl again lol Seriously, lovely card and beautifully crafted xxx
