Whiff of Joy GDT - A Sketch

Good Morning Everyone!

If you're like me, you've just dropped little ones off at school and are just now getting to your duties for the day. I meant to have this post scheduled but last night was a busy one. My little boy just started the First Grade today, it was an exciting, but sad morning too. This summer went by way too fast and now we just miss him! Here's hoping for a quick day!

Today my card is for the challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges where for the month of September I'm going to be a guest designer. I am very excited about this! I so enjoy using my WOJ stamps and I love a good challenge, so it's a perfect combination. Plus, all the WOJ DT members are just super talented so to be able to work with them is a great honor!

The challenge today is a sketch created by the ever talented Bev Rochester. It is one that I know I will use again too. Here is the sketch to follow and remember you also need to also use a Whiff of Joy image.

For my card I used this sweet shy Willow image and colored her with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen and glitter pen. The papers are K and Company with natural tone cardstock. I've distressed all the edges, which I really LOVE to do! The distressing also fits the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week.

I've embellished this card with a Martha Stewart lace border punch, some organdy and gingham ribbons, brads, Prima flowers and roses, metal hardware, and a strawberry charm. The sentiment is also WOJ and has been framed with my EK Success oval punches.

Thanks for popping on by today. I hope you have a great day. I'm off to keep busy hoping for the time to just fly on by so I can go pick my baby boy up from school! Happy stamping! :)
