Whiff Of Joy Challenge

I'm going away out shopping in a min but I wanted to share a card I made last night for the Whiff Of Joy challenge first. There is a fab sketch to follow so how could I resist?

The pretty papers I think are Magenta at least that's what the woman who works in the craft shop told me. They were selling them in single sheets and they don't have a name on but she said she was sure they were Magenta so that's what I'm going with. They have a lovely texture and have little foil bits in places too and double sided so I just had to buy them. Ok I admit it, the reason I bought them is because they were 75p for a 12x12" sheet and the others are all £1 or more lol.
I just used the same piece of paper for my whole card, the die cut circle that I cut with my nesties are the reverse of the sheet.
My flowers are a mix of Cardology, Prima and one from Tabby Crafts. Sentiment and the punches I used to punch it and the mat out are all SU! Everything else is from my stash. Oh and of course the image is WOJ and I got it as a rak from Heather along with some other gorgeous images a few months back but I have been holding onto them because I didn't want to use them up lol. I have coloured her with Copics.
Right that's the card done, now I'm off to the craft shop..... I mean out shopping for things that everyone else in the house needs. In my head that means the craft shop because if I didn't have my crafty stuff then everyone else in the house would be miserable. Am I convincing you yet? Didn't think so lol. I'm gonna take Rhianna with me so I can blame her for leading me to the craft shop and spending too much money there lol.

This is gorgeous. I can see why you just had to have those papers. I like double sided papers because you know they're going to match when you use both sides.

Lora my local craft shop is where Rach works, it's a treasure trove of craft goodies and very good prices plus Rach's boss Jan sometimes loans me stuff or gives me some pealoff sheets with a few missing. Long way for you to travel though. janex ps got my hearing back just, now Sam's ill, flu.
