First Whiff of Joy Challenge

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone's Monday is starting out well. I am so excited! I just love Whiff of Joy stamps and now, Whiff of Joy stamps lovers have a weekly challenge blog. My card today is my submission for the WOJ challenge. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge. You can learn all about this week's challenge here .

For my card, I stamped Willow with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock, colored her with copics, and cut her out. It doesn't show up well in the photograph, but I used spica glitter pens on the holly leaves and the light from the lantern. My card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, is SU's Not Quite Navy. I layered SU's Rose Red on top of that followed by my design papers from DCWV's Christmas stack. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranite (a retired in-color). I figured it matched Rose Red close enough :) I cut my circles and scallops with my nestabilities. I also ran my circles through the cuttlebug using the snowflakes embossing folder.

The sentiment is also from WOJ. I used SU's Word Window punch to punch it out. For some finishing touches, I added Primas and rhinestones for that extra bit of bling :)

Well, I may not be back until Wednesday of this week. I have a crazy work week ahead of me which probably won't leave me much time for crafting in the next couple of days. I'll be back as soon as I can :)

I would love to hear what you think of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. More soon :)

Hugs, Christine
