Whiff of Joy Challenge 9

Wow! Yet another amazing sketch over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge again this week. This time the sketch has been created by Heather - and with all the layers it was right up my street. I've made this into a wallet card for one of my DT colleagues as I needed to send her a few bits and pieces. I hope she likes it. I also wanted to do a pastel number because it makes a nice change from the strong Autumnal and Christmas colours I've been using for a while.

Papers are a mix of: DCWV Wedding stack, DCWV floral prints, K&Co Brenda Walton designer papers.

The pink check card, blue and yellow card are from my stash.

Whiff of joy Willow stamp and Whiff of Joy sentiment.

The pink flower is a making memories one and the centre of it is from a pink embroidered daisy ribbon found at my local haberdashers. The white flower and cream 'ribbons' were from the same haberdashers.

All other embellishments are from my stash.

Watercolour pencils and Pink and Grey Whispers brush strokes added to the image - along with white acrylic paint for highlights.

I made the little dropper using a bead and some wire (I wanted to use a charm but I don't have any yet, so the crystal bead is a nice alternative).
