There must be a WOJ angel .....


The Whiff of Joy Challenge blog is one year old this week ... wow how time flies when we're having fun lol! They're having a party over there with a GRAND PRIZE (!) (yippee!!) so I thought it would be rude not to enter!

This week's challenge is a fabulous sketch, so I rapidly got on the case with it.


Here's my card. I used this gorgeous image of "Confirmand Melinda", which was a birthday RAK from the lovely Helen.

I also made this card to fit with the following other challenges:

Pollycraft Challenge #25 - use at least 2 of snowflakes, sparkle, spots, stripes & swirls ... well I have used quite a few snowflakes, and trust me, this card is VERY sparkly!!
Spoon Full of Sugar #71 - Christmas
Creative Card Crew #30 - All that sparkles
ABC Challenge - E is for Embossing

And here's another view to highlight the card's extreme sparkliness!


Recipe:
Main image: Whiff of Joy "Confirmand Melinda", coloured with watercolour pencils and decorated (liberally!!) with glamour dust on the dress and wings - edges sponged with Colourbox Queue pigment ink in "thistle";
Sentiment: E-Z rub-ons individual letters - "silver funky font";
Paper: sparkly snowflake paper by Carol Wilson Fine Arts;
Supplies: glitter card in white, pale blue & teal from Edwin Allen; sparkly brads by Doodlebug; pearls from stash;
Tools: oval and scalloped oval nestabilities; pale blue glitter card embossed using Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder; snowflake shapes cut using Cuttlebug die "Snowflakes #2".
