Whiff of Joy challenge - my sketch!

It's time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy and this week we have a sketch for you by me!! I have used some of my favourite K&Co Madeleine papers on this card, all distressed with victorian velvet distress ink and stickles and I also stamped a Stempelglede stamp in each corner of the main paper.
This cute Charlotte writing letter stamp from the Whiff of Joy Happy Mail release was perfect for the Thank you card I needed to make. I've coloured her with copics and have also done a bit of doodling around the edge with a silver gel pen. As you can see I am starting to love my Big Shot already and have used a nestie for my image!!! I don't know how I've done without one of these for so long it is so much quicker than measuring and cutting myself!

I have used another one of my new goodies from the NEC, this stunning Leoni Em Maidenhair fern punch. The ribbon is from my stash.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid crafts and I've mounted them on another fern leaf. I punched some scraps of paper with my MS doiley lace punch to frame the image and the lace is from my stash.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Whiff of Joy challenge. Don't forget to visit the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's stunning work and see if you won a top 3 blinkie! x
