Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - My sketch

Woohoo!! Time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges and this week we have a sketch by yours truly!! I was asked by a friend to make a Christening card in yellows and spring colours and Willow with her little baby is just perfect for the job don't you think!? The papers are from MME's La Paperie stack and I've sewn the edges and inked them with crushed olive distress ink. I am entering my card into Bearly Mine challenge too as their theme is Beautiful Babies.

I've coloured the image with copics and added some gold liquid pearls to the flowers in Willow's hair and the buttons on her dress.

I created the sentiment on the computer and cut it out with a Whiff of Joy die. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and the swirls are a Magnolia doohickey.

I added a selection of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the large blossom is by Prima. There is a silver heart charm just peeping out from under the bow too.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy challenge. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the teams incredible cards - you won't be disappointed! Thanks for looking! x
