2 challenges, 1 card


I have been missing quite a few chalenges the last few weeks so wanted to get a few done. I have combined 2 challenges for this card. I used the fab sketch from Whiff Of Joy and am also entering it in to the Charisma Cardz challenge which is lace, flowers and pearls. I normally use those 3 things when I do this kind of card anyway so it was the perfect challenges to combine.
I just bought a new Porcelain pad from Basic Grey so I just had to use some of the papers from it. I must admit, I used quite a lot of papers because I decorated all the inside as well because I am going to use it for someone special but she is so worth it. I haven't took a photo of the inside just incase the person I am sending it to reads this but I have just used the same papers and flowers as the outside.
I got the lovely Whiff Of Joy image from Lorraine as I don't own any of my own yet, but I think I will have to buy some because I don't think there is one WOJ stamp that I don't like.
I coloured her with my usual copics. All the flowers I used are Primas that I got from Aries Crafts, spacers are from my local craft shop. The one I used on the left are nice and heavy but I have to admit they are quite heavy in price too. I paid 37p each and I normally only pay 3p or 5p for the others from the same shop so it's a bit of a difference in price, The other 2 I have used here were only 3p each! I only bought about 10 of the more expensive ones though just to try them and got loads of the cheapo ones lol. The charm is from my local bead shop, and lace from my stash.
I am hoping to have lots of crafting time this weekend and also to get time to visit everyones blogs to see what you have all been up too.
