Whiff of Joy City Girl collection

Morning!! Hope you're all having a better week than me this week, my little boy is off school with some mystery rash that is getting worse by the hour so I'm completely housebound!

Remember my little Whiff of Joy collection I was showing you all with the same BoBunny collection of papers a couple of weeks ago? Well I only got half way through showing the ten cards and haven't had a "free" day to show any since, so, as I have no challenge cards to post today I thought I'd show you another one of them. All the papers have been distressed with a distressing tool and inked with weathered wood distress ink and stickles.

I have coloured Willow with Champagne with distress inks and added a touch of stickles to her champagne.
Isn't this gem flourish from Prima stunning!? You get two of these and two corner flourishes per pack!! The punched edge has been created with EK success diamond scallop punch.

The white flowers are Prima and I have inked the edges with weathered wood distres ink and sprayed them with pearl glimmer mist. I added a couple of punched flowers from the brown paper and some gorgeous gemstone buttons from the Hobby House (I just snipped the backs off to use them as flower centres). The heart pins are also from the Hobby House. I finished the display with some twigs punched with my MS branch punch.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

So sorry about your little one..hopefully it's not one of those itchy rashes..Maybe he had an allergic reaction to something he ate or touched (did you use a new detergent?)... Wish him well for me

Your Willow is absolutely gorgeous!!! Love the flowers, the touch of stickles & the gorgeous rhinestone swirl you placed on the side.
