Whiff of Joy Challenge -- Love You




Hello everyone and Happy Monday :) I hope your week is off to a great start. I have a super quick post for you as I'm running out the door shortly to work. For my card today, I decided to participate in this week's challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. Our challenge this week was a sketch challenge. I decided to use this adorable Melinda Blowing Kisses image. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I added some Shimmerz to the hearts and her bracelet and some Diamond Stickles to her wings. I then cut the image out using the brand new Labels 4 Nestabilities (Susana carries all the new nesties, click HERE to check them out. I then inked around the image with SU's Close to Cocoa ink.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Regal Rose. I layered Chocolate Chip on top of that followed by my design papers from Basic Grey (Bittersweet Collection). I added brown ribbon and Glitter Hearts and Primas and Pearls. Finally, I added my sentiment, which is from Hot Off the Press (the set is called Tiny Words and is a wonderful, versatile sentiment set). I used my SU Word Window Punch to cut out the sentiment. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful week. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then :)

Big Hugs, Christine
