Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call

This card is for the Whiff of Joy guest designer call which is held every two months on the 16th of the month.  There is a specific recipe for this card -  1 cardstock, 2 design papers, 1 button, 1 ribbon.  I decided that I wanted to do something spring like or summery, hence the use of these lovely papers, which I think Melinda goes with perfectly.

I have used Melinda with Bouquet for my image, coloured with Copics, with a little bit of bling added to her wings with Stickles.  I have added a flower by cutting one from the double-sided background paper which is K & Co Berry Sweet.    The reverse of the floral pattern has glitter added to the images.  Gorgeous lace is from Tabby Crafts and button is from stash.  The punched edge is done using a Martha Stewart Deco punch.

I am also entering this for the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Beautiful card, Val! I love the way you have coloured her, and fab choice of papers. Good luck with the DT call x

  2. A great girls card. Lovely colours and the lacey punched border compliments the real lace edging beautifully and pulls everything together nicely.
