Attn: Whiff of Joy Fans!!


If you're a Whiff of Joy fan you don't want to miss our challenge this week.  The Whiff of Joy Challenge blog has a faboulous sketch for you AND we are having a DT Call.  Isn't that exciting?!?!?  So ink up those gorgeous WOJ images, enter the challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp and apply for the DT.

I've used Willow with Flower Basket along with some older MME Wild Asparagus DP.  This card has all the fun elements that I love playing with.  Stitching, Ribbon, Distressing, Border punches, Making my own flowers and ink sponging my sky background.  I gave this card a good distressing and even grunged up the ribbon and bow leaving the frayed edges.  LOVE IT!!!   I don't know why, but anytime I use any image that has been drawn by Elisabeth Bell, I just feel it calls for distressing.

Absolutely delightful - love all the distressing & that ribbon down the side. The flowers & the background - oh I sit in amazement - wish I could just pop over the road & you could show me how to get the hang of this distressing tool.

WOW!! So many wonderful elements to this card!! Love the clouds, works perfectly with this image. And I do agree with you, that the Whiff of Joy images needs a distressed look to go with it, and you captured that look wonderfully!!
