This card is for the whiff of Joy challenge initially as its one of my newly aquirred stamp images the only WOJ one I have so far so you'll probably all get sick of seeing the same image but still. I love the way she looks in different colours, and these colours brown, orange and ivory make her look so warm and comfortable. It's different for me, as I am trying very hard to make my cards more fussy, for me, as opposed to my usual plain and simple. I do find it hard to mix and match different papers and patterns and I'm so not a ribbon and flower girl, so when I do put them on a card I'm really stepping out of my comfort zone, but I think I'm happy with the result, its probably the colours that help as it doesn't look too girly.
I'm also entering this card into the Quixotic challenge which is faux or real stitching. I love sewing but as yet can't bring myself to setting up my sewing machine to make a card, so faux stitching it is ...for now.
The layout for this card is from Pixie cottage, I quite like this layout as it isn't too fussy.
I'm also going to enter it into the Paperplay #41 challenge which is a recipe of 2 patterned papers 3 buttons and 1 ribbon. I hope they don't mind that I added some extras too.
