Whiff of Joy Challenge #72

My oh my, did I have FUN making this card for the Whiff of Joy challenge this week!  All you need to do is follow the lovely sketch by the very talented Bev Rochester. It's as easy as that.  I bought some new DP over the weekend from the Scrapbook Shop in Durbanville. Note to all the Cape Town girls:  they have discounts on all their DP, so pay them a visit soon ;). It's amazing what inspiration a new piece of paper can give you.  Hope you like the colours of this one?  It's Lucky from Basic Grey.

The image is a WoJ stamp, Helpful Melinda.  I don't think I've used her before - ain't she cute ?  Lots of layering as you can see and I've even used my cuttlebug (hooray!).  Poor old thing was feeling very neglected in the cupboard, so I thought it was time to bring her out to play...lol    Aren't those leaves and flowers just too pretty for words?  As mentioned in a previous post, I purchase the most lovely embellies for my cards and then I shelve and forget about them.  Kendall spring-cleaned my whole crafty corner for me (ain't she just the best daughter ever?) and I now have a few "new" items to use on my cards.  Thought I would also use some lovely glitter for sparkle!!

I really hope they like this one over at WoJ. Thanks for visiting and for the lovely comments. It's always a pleasure reading them and a few new visitors too (hello to Wendy's sister).  Hope you've all enjoyed your weekend and looking forward to the working week ahead.  Take care, hugs Sharon x

Lovely card Sharon. I have learnt that when my kids offer to clean, they are looking for some long forgotten stash that I won't miss. LOL I would check my stash if I were you, you might be missing some :)
