Whiff of Joy Challenge # 67

Hi friends... and a warm welcome to any new people visiting my blog.  Don't forget to sign my guestbook before you leave, so that I can return the favour.

Thanks so much to everyone who has paid me a visit and for the lovely comments you've been leaving... it really warms the heart and is most appreciated.

Well, here's my little creation for the Whiff of Joy Challenge this week.  The theme is Pearls and Swirls, which is easy enough. Don't forget to use a Whiff of Joy image though and this is my other new stamp I received yesterday.  As you've seen from all the other bloggers who have been using her, she's Willow Dressing Up.  Ain't she a cutie pie!  I've mostly seen her in a black dress, but I've decided to go with a blue and grey number. The DP I've used on this card has swirls all over it and I've highlighted 2 lots of swirls by encrusting them with rhinestones.  As you can see, a lot of pearls used on this card.   I hope it will inspire you to take part in the Whiff of Joy challenge... go check out the DT member's card for more inspiration

The pearls, stamp, rhinestones, pearlised pins and copics were all purchased from Paola's Paper Haven.  The DP is from a pad purchased from our local CNA and the base of my card purchased from The Scrapbook Shop in Durbanville. The roses were purchased from a lovely shop in the Parow Shopping Centre.

I hope you like this little card and if so, your comment would be most welcome... enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  It's back to the crafting table for me... tons of hugs and blessings, Sharon x
