Card no. 56 - Whiff of Joy Challenge no. 74 - Take Two

So, this is my second card using the same sketch from WOJ Challenge no. 74. Surprisingly I had time to finish two! cards. Yipeee.....

Anyways, I will be packing my craft room soon - yes, we are moving! :) so I want to get as much craft action as I can.

I used the sweet & simple DCWV papers (Linen Closet) - base & DP, a lot of Stickles (Stardust & Diamond). I used Whiff of Joy image, but I am not so sure about the coloring. I wanted to try to paint my new Distress Ink and then when it didn't turn out so well I tried to "hide" my bad paint job with some glitter ... not such a good idea :) I have A LOT to learn!
I embellished the card with some pearls from Michael's, Ribbon from Wal-Mart and Flowers by Prima. I used my MS Branch punch, Fiskars Border Punch and Brads by Making Memories.

Let me know what I can do differently .... or recommend a tutorial... that be fabulous!!!

Thanks for stopping by...
