WoJ & PTW: 'have a happy day'

Happy Monday! This is a pre-scheduled post as it's hubby's day off and as the weather should be nice (*fingers crossed*) and his ankle is all better now we will be strolling on a mountain somewhere :/ (not my choice obviously but I could do with the excercise and fresh air plus he did bribe me with a stop off at Hobbycrafts in Chester on the way back LOL)

So whilst I'm being dragged up a mountain somewhere I shall leave you with this card I've done for PTW (think I've just got in by the skin of my teeth) which is a recipe of 1 circle, 2 ribbons & 3 stamps and also for Whiff of Joy which is 'let's get dirty' (distressing).

  • Images: 'Melinda with bouquet' & 'cat with bow' WoJ stamps. sentiment from PM sentiment set
  • Colouring: stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Copics with touches of Sakura stardust pen and glaze pen on the flowers. Antique Linen & tattered rose distress inks applied around edge of circle
  • Paper: K & Co 'Madeline' and cardstock to match - all distressed and sanded in places
  • Others: 2 ribbons, lace, paper roses, petite scallop nesties, MS border punch and branch punch, EK flourish punch and SU word window punch
Don't forget you've got until tonight to enter my WoJ blog candy. I'll announce winner after midnight. Have a lovely day, hopefully less strenuous than mine!!

WOW Frances, your card is absolutely stunning! The colouring of your WOJ image is superb and I love the paper and all the wonderful details. The little area of embossing on the edges of the image are superb, that's such a great idea, looks so effective. Hope you have a great weekend.
