Whiff of Joy challenge - my sketch

Wednesday already and that means it is time for another Whiff of Joy challenge! This week it is a sketch by me - hope you like it and can play along!! I made this for my cousin who had a beautiful baby girl recently. The papers are from Forever Friends baby paper pad. The edges are torn, distressed with victorian velvet distress ink and then stickled.
I have coloured Willow with Toddler with copics. The baby pink buttons are from Basic Grey.
I did some extra tearing in the top right corner to provide a gap for this gorgeous Prima gem and pearl swirl to come out from. The edge of the bottom paper was punched with a MS punch, I'm not sure of the name as I was too eager to open it and threw away the packaging LOL!
I added a crisp white satin ribbon from my stash and a bow. The "It's a girl!" sentiment is stamped with victorian velvet distress ink and is available in a set of fabulous new baby sentiments from Whiff of Joy. The cute baby bottle charm is also from Whiff of Joy!
As this was actually being sent out I even managed to decorate the inside! This sentiment is from the same new baby set.

Hope you like it and can join in with the challenge this week! You have two weeks to join us because as from today Whiff of Joy challenge is going to be a fortnightly challenge so you get more time to play along! Thanks for looking! x
