Whiff of Joy and a Couple More

Hi All, happy Wednesday!

Hope you're having a great day. This week is flying right on by again! It's been super humid here in NH and we've been stuck in the house dodging monsoon rain and thunderstorms. We're hoping for a break soon. Today is also the birthday of one of my friends and I just wanted to take a second to wish her a wonderful day! Happy Birthday Janna!

I have a card to share today for a few challenges. To start, I used the color combo challenge and image to fit the Whiff of Joy challenge. This week they wanted you to use Pink and Brown. I haven't made a card with this combo in a while so this was a great challenge. I dug out some old BasicGrey Bittersweet papers and SU! cardstock in Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, and Pink Pirouette.

I received this sweet image from a swap I did with some friends. She's been colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. I also added some glitter to her hair with a Spica pen. This sketch is from Truly Scrumptious with the added challenge to add bling. I got these cute little pink dangling gems from EllenHutson.com and thought it worked perfectly as bling. I've also added a couple rhinestone brads for a bit more bling. This card also fits the challenge at ABC challenge which was A is for Anything Goes. I finished this card off with some felt and paper flowers and grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great afternoon. Happy stamping! :)
