Whiff of Joy DT - Nora Blowing Kisses and a Tutorial

My card today features the oh so cute Nora blowing kisses from Whiff of Joy. I just love her and again I think she could be used for more than just Valentine's!! She is great to colour with all that flowing hair!! The gorgeous papers are by October Afternoon from The Hobby House. I wanted something bright for this fun image and these were perfect!!!
I have coloured Nora with copics, which brings me on to my tutorial. I have created a step by step picture tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog showing how I shade around my images as I have had a number of emails regarding this!
The gorgeous ribbon was in the half price Christmas decorations at my local garden centre!! Another reason I wanted some bright papers for this card! The gorgeous pearl heart slider is from The Hobby House too.

The gorgeous die along the bottom of the image is Whiff of Joy's Endless hearts die and I've added some pearls from The Hobby House too. The red heart is Whiff of Joy's curly hearts die cut. All these dies are fabulous and work so well together!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Don't forget to check out my tutorial! Thanks for looking! x

What an absolutely stunning card Jane! The bow is so pretty on it and I love your coloring and the space you left around the image. I did a card with Nora yesterday too by coincidence but your card with Nora is the best one I've seen until now. Gorgeous!
