Whiff Of Joy Challenges

Finally got round to doing the Whiff Of Joy challenge, it was a sketch this week by Heather. Great sketch thank you.

Here is Heather's sketch

And here is my card.


For this card I used a terracotta cs for the background and you can't see it but I embossed it with a diamond cuttlebug folder. All the other papers used are from the new SU catalogue and it's a designer paper called Spiced Cider. The photo doesn't do it justice , they really are great colours for a masculine card. The image is called Matthew with present and he has been coloured with promarkers. The sentiment is also from the Whiff of Joy collection. I didn't want to use the blooms like the sketch as it felt too feminine but I did add some brown and cream brads.

Ooooh! I've found someone who's done the stitching for me today (I usually stitch things!). I absolutely love what you've made here - so much that I wish I had stitched mine now. A really fabulous card.
