Whiff of Joy challenge DT - Donalda's Sketch

Yippee!! it is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge and this week we have a gorgeous sketch by Donalda for you to use!! My lovely hubby asked me to make a New Home card for him to give a colleague. After lots of searching through stamps thinking what I could use I thought it would be fun to use the gorgeous palace from the 1001 Nights Whiff of Joy kit! The paper is by Bo Bunny and I've distressed it with walnut stain distress ink.
I have stamped the image four times so that I could create a decoupage of the palace to add some extra interest to the card. The images are coloured with copics and layered up with silicone glue.

I added some swirls using my Tim Holtz fancy flourish die from black cardstock. The "Have a Royal Celebration" sentiment is also from the 1001 nights kit and I have added "in your new home" underneath with a fine black pen. I have curved the sentiment tag so that it takes up less room on the card as it looked a little too large for the space when it was flat.
In this photo you can see how I have layered up the palace. The red flowers are from Prima and the blossoms and roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts who are sponsoring our prize this fortnight!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the teams stunning cards! x
