The Pink Elephant and Whiff of Joy



Well, now I think I'm getting a bit too big for my boots!! I've only gone and made a card that fits with TWO challenges (can't even remember the last time that I managed to do that LOL!)

I've used the fabulous sketch from this week's challenge at The Pink Elephant. I really liked this, it was a lovely 'clean' sketch, and as I seem to be going through a bit of a 'less is more' phase at the moment, it exactly suited my needs.

The card also fits the challenge at Whiff of Joy where the theme this week is to use 'bling' on your cards. I've covered this by adding some very sparkly glitter card to the sketch, attaching my sparkly flower with a diamante brad and there are even little diamonds on the sentiment, enough bling even for my tastes LOL!

Card Details:
* Image - Whiff of Joy 'Willow sitting with Floral Wreath'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - DCWV 'Old World' mat stack
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Embossed Zig Zag'
* Everything else from my stash

I don't know whether I'll manage to be back again before my DT card for Sketch & Stash on Monday, but the way things are going at the moment I wouldn't be at all surprised!
