Whiff of Joy Challenge # 64

Good Afternoon all... very few visits today I see... must be because everyone is busy crafting!  I notice that the weather is not too good in Scotland, snowy, windy and terribly cold... a lovely day to stay indoors and craft!

For those of you who did visit me yesterday (thank you ladies ;), you will have read about the gorgeous Design Paper I purchased. I couldn't wait to get busy and this is my little creation for the Whiff of Joy challenge which is based on a sketch by their talented DT member, Gio.
Recipe for this card
Base of card: Bazill in a dark marroon
DP: Both DP's are from the Love Struck range by Making Memories - aren't they gorgeous?
Image: WoJ's Melinda Blowing Hearts, coloured in with Copics. Stamped on gorgeous paper which I purchased from the Scrapnook.  The right paper is the key to showing off your colouring to perfection.
Embellies:  Lovely roses from my stash. Used my new leaf cutter to punch out somes leaves to rest the roses on.  Gorgeous maroon coloured ribbon was used for the corner to make a nice bow.  Further added red rhinestones in the corners.
Sentiment:  The sentiment is from a mixed set of 79 mixed die-cuts by Making Memories which I also purchased yesterday.
Another shot to show you the inside of the card. I just used plain white card paper to keep it simple and for someone to write a nice long message of love (hehe).  I just added one of the die-cut hearts on the top.

Hope you like this little creation and if you do, I'd love for you to leave a comment as I always enjoy reading them.  Tons of hugs, Sharon

Before I leave, I must share some very good news with you all... my friend Paola is now a member of the Whiff of Joy Challenge Design Team.  Isn't that fabulous?  Congrats my friend. We're so proud of you!

Great card Sharon ..red photographs so well.
This weekend I am going to work on my photography as I agree with you that sometimes our photos look flat.
Ps Look back over your older posts sometime and see how your cards and colouring have dramatically changed .
