Whiff of Joy Challenge #21

This is my first attempt at a Whiff of Joy challenge, and it was my favourite kind of  challenge - a sketch.

This is the sketch by Heather..

And this is my take on it - I've stuck close to the sketch as it was so much fun to work with.

Starting from the card blank and working out the way, I used:

Papermania Scrumptious collection paper, inking the edges with chalk ink

the 2nd layer is a piece of the new lilac "gemstone" core'dinations card, embossed with the swirly cuttlebug folder and sanded

the 3rd layer is a piece of gold gemstone core'dinations card embossed with the happy birthday cuttlebug folder and sanded

the 4th layer (narrow pink strip) is papermania scrumptious again

and the 5th layer is papermania from the spring collection from last year

the paper flowers are all prima, and I have stamped them with an Anita's flowery stamp using the same chalk ink as before

the sentiment stamp was free in Cardmaking and Papercraft mag a few issues ago, this was stamped, cut to size and inked with the chalk ink

the buttons all came from the Mad About Cards pound shop

and finally the all important image is Princess Charlotte (thankyou Fiona) from WoJ, coloured with promarkers.

Here are a couple of close-ups, the first one is to show the use of clear stardust gelly roll on the dress, and the second one shows the stamping on the paper flowers and also the sanding on the new gemstone core'dinations card.
