A Card a Sneak Peek and a Miracle

Whiff of Joy Challenge



I hope you have a few spare minutes as this is an extra long post Sorry!!!!!!
Our challenge this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge is a colour theme Teal and Orange, and the miracle in the title is that I have managed to post this card at all, last night I had a series of Senior moments :(, as a result of which this is the third card I made for the challenge, the first one I got the challenges mixed up and made a card to fit next weeks theme, after the very patient Donalda e-mailed me that I had done the wrong one, I started again this time I used last weeks theme der!!!!!!!!!!!. I do so hope I have now got the challenge correct.



I have used another lovely Willow Stamp from Whiff of Joys Fall Collection, she has been coloured with distress inks (Dried Marigold, Broken China, Frayed Burlap, Tea Dye, Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint). The papers are Basic Grey Marrakech Pad. The beautiful Blue Rose was a gift form my lovely friend Tab, thank you sweetie MWAH xxxx
I have sprayed all the roses with Old Lace Glimmer Mist just wish you could see the sparkle.




I carried the papers and sketch onto the inside and added another of the lovely Stamps from the Whiff of Joys Fall Collection,
