A Whiff of Joy with my new favorite WOJ image!



I just can't tell you how happy it made me making this card! Katharina you are so sweet to have named this little one "Michelle Celebrating Donkey". I just love it! I always do love all her images, but this one is dear to my heart!
Ok, so she is colored with my Copics and then although you can't see it, the balloons and the bow have Glazed Dimensions and shine and sparkle. I then cut it with my Nestibilities with my new Label die, and then cut a mat out of the purple Coordination's card stock, the same that is used as the base. I love this paper, I sanded it to give a distressed look.

I also had to use my new Martha Stewart Valentine Border Punch... Oh how I love hearts... and now a really adorable border punch with them.. will be used on lots of cards! I cut a piece of green coordination's cardstock and sanded it too. The pattern paper is a Heidi Grace paper, love the colors. I found this really large purple flower... to perfect! I wish my leaves had shown a bit more, I cut these with the new Making Memories Slice, and they have some really cute details, but oops the flower was so big it hid most all of it. The center of the flower is a large green button, that I filled the center with purple stickles. and to finish it all off I found a piece of tiny polk a dot ribbon.
Now all of this is for this weeks Whiff of Joy Challenge... which the theme this week is a color theme. PURPLE and GREEN! Great challenge huh! Hope you join in too cuz these ladies rock!
Hubby is off again today - we are finally working on my utility room again! Hopefully I will have a nice pretty new laundry area by the end of the week! The dryer door will actually open all the way!! So better get busy! Hope you have a great day... oh and I will be back later tonight to announce the winner of the BLOG CANDY!
HUGS and-

Adore your card and the colors you have chosen. I have that punch and it is one of the best, I think. Has lots of possibilites other than just Valentines, weddings, anniversaries, new babies, etc.
