Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - 100th Challenge celebration blog hop!!!

Welcome to the Whiff of Joy Challenge celebration blog hop!! We're celebrating our 100th challenge this fortnight so we have an extra big prize as well as secret candies hidden around the design team's blogs!! To be in with a chance of winning you will need to enter the challenge and comment on the design team's blogs! Our theme is nice and easy - "anything goes", so as long as you use a Whiff of Joy image you can enter! If you have arrived at my blog from the lovely Gio's blog then you're on the right track, if not, you may want to start at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog to follow the hop from the beginning!

I have made a congratulations card for my cousin's young daughters as my cousin has just had a new baby daughter!! I think it helps them to not feel left out of all the obvious attention doted on the new baby!! I have used Prima Annalee papers and have sewn the edges. I am entering my card into the Friday Sketcher's challenge as I have used their gorgeous sketch!

I thought the gorgeous Mother and Child stamp by Norma Fickel was perfect for this card! - instead of them being Mother and Child, they are are the oldest and middle daughters :). I have coloured them with copics and added a touch of stickles to the stars and flowers on the dresses.

I created the sentiment myself on the computer and cut it out with a gorgeous Tickled Pink sentiment die. The gorgeous hydrangea flower and small flower were gifts and the chiffon flower is from The Hobby House. I added some twigs punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

The blossom is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the button is from my stash. The twine is Whiff of Joy's new button twine!

Hope you like it and can join in the fun this fortnight at Whiff of Joy challenge! Now it is time to hop on over to the lovely Kathrin's blog to see her gorgeous creation! Thanks for looking! x
