Whiff of Joy challenge - Bev's sketch

We have a gorgeous sketch for you at Whiff of Joy challenge this week by the amazingly talented Bev, I just loved using it and I'm sure you will too! I need several thank you cards for Kara's birthday presents so have made a start with this one! The gorgeous papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer collection and I've distressed them all and inked them with vintage photo distress ink.

I thought Charlotte with letter would be perfect to depict my little girl and complete the sentiment and image all in one go! I have coloured the image with copics and I stamped the letter and Charlotte's hands again so that I could create a 3D effect. I have stamped around the image with a swirl from the Whiff of Joy Christmas Swirls collection using tattered rose distress ink.

The lace and ribbon are from my stash and the gems along the ribbon are from the Hobby House.

The little buttons are from various collections of Basic Grey buttons - I must get some more as these tiny ones are just so cute!

The flower is Prima and I have teamed it with some leaves punched with a Woodware punch from gold cardstock and the swirls were punched with EK success punch from the base cardstock.

Hope you can join us this week and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's amazing work and see if you made the top 3 if you entered last week! Thanks for looking! x
