Whiff of Joy challenge - my sketch!

Thank you all for your gorgeous Coffee and Cream creations for the Whiff of Joy challenge last week!! This week we have a sketch by me!! Hope you like working with it! I have used some of my favourite papers from the K&Co Madelaine paper pad. The green one I have punched with my MS heart lace border punch to give a pretty edge where the two papers meet. I have also distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink and stitched them too!

Isn't this Willow reading a story stamp from Whiff of Joy gorgeous!? I just love how cute little Oakley looks with his foot over the chair, my little boy does that a lot LOL!! I have coloured the image with copics and added some stickles to the shadows under the chair and around the edge of the image.

The flowers I have made with EK success punched flowers. The brads are from the Hobby House and the leaves have been punched using a Woodware punch.

I have cut pieces from a Prima pearl swirl for either side of the image and I stuck some double sided tape to my ribbon so that I could pleat it across the card.

The sentiment is from a Forever Friends set I've had for ages. I have inked the edge with tattered rose distress ink and added some stickles. I made the scallop behind the sentiment by cutting some punched flowers into individual petals.

Hope you like it and you can play along with us this week. Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see if you made the top 3 if you entered last week and to drool over the rest of my teamies gorgeous cards!! x
