Paper Maniac DT and Whiff of Joy Challenge GDT

Hi All, happy Wednesday!

Hope your week is going well. Things are still quite busy here, but hopefully after I get into the swing of a new routine things will quiet down. Today I have two cards to share.

Whiff of Joy Challenges

First is my Whiff of Joy challenges GDT card. This week the challenge is a color challenge to use orange and teal and of course a Whiff of Joy image on your creation.

I chose to use this sweet Angel image and colored her with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen and glitter pen. The papers are some I found in my stash, retired ones from SU!. I used my circle Nesties to frame the image and added some ribbon and Prima flowers with silver hardware and buttons to embellish.

This card also fits the challenges at Kaboodle Doodles of charmed creations and Creative Card Crew's Fairy Nice Day theme.

Paper Maniac

This card is for Paper Maniac DT work. This week our focus is on using ribbons. I grabbed this pretty ribbon from my Paper Maniac goodies and paired it with this Unity flower stamp set. I've added some embossing which I did with my CB and embossing folder and I've sponged some ink on the edges and to the image. The papers are BasicGrey Offbeat with SU! cardstock. I used StazOn ink and SU! ink on the image. The sentiment is from the same Unity stamp set as the flower.

Don't forget you still have time to enter the Paper Maniac challenge which is to use embossing on your project.

Thanks for dropping on by today. I hope to have some time very soon to drop by and visit all of you. Have a great day, happy stamping! :)

For your second card, I love how you showcased printed ribbon! It goes so well with the patterned paper and main image. Love how you subtly highlighted the main image.

Hi Denise - sorry I'm late commenting but I'm playing catch-up after being ill.
These are two wonderful cards. They really show your versatility. I adore the whiff of joy one because the image is so sweet.
