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...

Can you believe that found spare time for some crafting in my crazy household? BTW - we are moving AGAIN. Oh, my!
Well, I simply had to! My new friend Melodie from Art from the Heart sent me these fabulous papers (and more) made by American Crafts (Moda Bella). I paired it with Bazzill Basics Paper (London Fog) and put some simple embelishments: cut out flowers from the paper & Robin's Nest Dew Drops. I used my Martha Stewart border punch to do the middle & inside borders.
I used the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog's current sketch and (of course!) WoJ image. I colored gorgeous Willow with ProMarkers & ShinHan Markers. I glittered up the finished card with Glimmer Mist. Yum! Nice and simple ...

Finally both of my babies are feeling 100%, so I SHOULD have time to craft, but now we're moving, so there is NO time... one day, one day (soon, I hope) I will have back my mommy "crafty" time :)
I hope everyone had wonderful Easter and I'll keep you posted.
