My First Whiff of Joy

It's time for another challenge on the 7 kids Challenge blog. This one I think is a pretty easy one so hopefully many of you will decide to participate. The challenge is to make a square card- any size as long as it is square. My card measures 5.5" X 5.5".


This is my first time using a Whiff of Joy image- can you believe it? They are just adorable and Elisabeth Bell is an amazing artist but so many stamps, so little time- know what I mean. I think I may be hooked though. I am excited as I am broadening my stamping horizons so to speak and you will be seeing me use many new companies in the future. There are so many wonderful stamps to choose from at 7 Kids College Fund I just couldn't resist.

I colored Willow with Hot Chocolate with my copics and used a clear spica glitter pen on the flowers of her pants and the mug. She was a fun image to color. I added roses to the bottom corner and pearls to the corners and in the scallops of the border punch. All of the edges were sewn with my sewing machine.
