Whiff of Joy challenge 29 - a sketch by Katharina

We have a wonderful sketch by the fabulously talented Katharina for our Whiff of Joy challenge this week. I really love working with Katharina's images.

I've gone with colours I would not normally use but am quite pleased with how the card turned out. even to the gold charms and findings instead of my usual silver. I've even added some tiny green crystal gems to the butterfly, the basket charm and the centres of the flowers.

On the inside I have used the muffin basket accessory stamp and more of those gorgeous gold findings from The Hobby House - love them and think they work so well on their own even without any flowers.

And lastly a different angle (getting carried away with all the photos now!!)

  35. Oh Bev ~ This is just gorgeous!! I have to let you know that your work has inspired me so much...I visited the Hobby place and ordered some of the spacers you are using...I doubt I can ever be as good as you in the design concept, but I gotta try the flower spacers...it just 'makes' your cards :)

  37. Bev, your card as always is beautiful. I love all the detail you put into a card. I've never seen the charms and spacers(as you refer to them) here in Australia and they certainly ad a lot to the overall look of your cards.
    We've a big craft show coming up soon - I'll be searching I think.
