Whiff of Joy 3-2-1- challenge

Out of all the Whiff of Joy images I still think this Melinda is my all-time favourite. There is just something about the innocence that gets me every time. I've used her for this weeks 3-2-1 challenge on Whiff of Joy - 3 papers, 2 flowers and 1 button. Do you know how HARD it was to use just two flowers lol, I had to sit on me mitts to stop myself from dipping into the flowers and charms. And no charms, oh my goodness - I took a dizzy turn lol.
woj-321-1
I got a bit carried away with the inside, must have been to make up for the lack of embellies on the card. woj-321-2

A close up of each side

woj-321-3 Got a bit carried away with the pictures herewoj-321-4 Please go and check out the rest of the team’s cards – they are all fabulous!


Recipe:
Melinda Helping Angel from Whiff of Joy (on offer at the mo) has been coloured with my beloved Distress Inks and H2O's
The papers and K & Co.
Flowers are Prima
The pearl button I found in my button box and new it would be perfect to help out with my embellie withdrawal on this card lol.
The border punch is Martha Stewart (from Ebay)
The sentiment on the front is from a freebie set from Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine, the sentiment inside is from Elzybells and is just PERFECT for these darling Guardian Angel stamps from Whiff of Joy. This card is for a very special friend and the verse pretty much sums up what I feel about her. See there I go all soft in the head now, it must be the lack of embellies (there she goes harping on about them again lol)


Thanks for looking,

  13. Gorgeous Bev! I know how you must be feeling... being restricted in adding more blooms and stuff... But you have such a great mind that everything seems just perfect no matter how many embellies you use or not use.

  15. Bev, I love this card. The papers, the sentiments ... everything. Have to say I am very impressed that you stuck to 2 flowers - thought you might try to sneak one on the inside. I have just managed a card with NO flowers - how about that, lol, and you think you have had a funny turn, lol. Have a fabby day
