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:
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".
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
