Whiff of Joy Challenge - a sketch for you

woj-black-kaiser-1 It's a sketch this week (I just luvs sketches) and I've got another series of cards to do using another range of papers - so I'm afraid you will be seeing another 3 very similar cards over the next few days, and I am so going to enjoy working with these papers. They are just so delish, and classy and yummy - I think they are the most perfect papers for wedding cards ever!! If you saw the state I got myself in to when I had to cut these, and I had no spares!! I put in a desperate call to Jill at The Hobby House to send me more which made me feel a little better lol. I think the Fleur-de-Lys punch is just perfect for the papers - a match for sure.

Apologies for the poo colouring - I had left the card till the last minute and had coloured a different image but when I came to assemble the card the image was just too big and hid most of the delish papers (and that just would not do now would it!) So I had to quickly stamp and colour a different image to get a decent pic before I lost the daylight. I’ll have to do another before I forget. I used some Flowersoft for her head-dress and bouquet but the white FS seemed to disappear into the green so I pushed some pearls in for the flowers.

I have kept the inside very plain to show off the gorgeous papers and punched border.

  8. Bev, had you not mentioned it you wuld never have guessed you coloured the image in quickly as an afterthought, its PERFECT!! As you colouring always is!! I love the way you have added the pearls and flower soft. It really blings the bouquet to life. You are totally right about those papers. Just perfect for wedding cards - and not too girly either!! It can be so hard to find "manly" wedding papers. I think you have done it!
    Gorgeous card as always sweetie,
