Whiff of Joy City Girl Collection

Morning! Firstly I want to say sorry for not visiting much the last few days, with my little boy off school I didn't manage to have my little computer sessions during my daughter's nap time which really put me behind LOL! He has gone back to school today bless him, he's been so good while he's been off and he couldn't wait to get back to see his friends today! This is another of the cards I made with the collection of Bo Bunny papers back in February. I'm nearly done showing them all now, just one or two more LOL!! I think this was maybe my favourite papers from the collection, just love the chocolate mint swirly paper reminded me of the chocolate lime sweets my Mum used to get when I was little LOL! I distressed all the edges with vintage photo I think (it was so long ago now I'm not sure which colour it was LOL) and added some stickles.

Willow with Champagne was coloured with distress inks. I mixed the green myself to match in with the papers.
The gorgeous flowers are from Prima and the spacers, brads and charm are all from the Hobby House. I punched the leaves with my trust Woodware punch.
I used a gorgeous prima corner flourish for some sophisticated sparkle!

The punched edging was punched with an EK success diamond lace punch.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
PS We have over 300 entries on Simon Says Stamp Challenge!!! If you haven't entered already you still have until 8am tomorrow to get your card in - we'd love it if we reached 400 entries!!! x
