Whiff of joy DT call

Phew, with about a couple of minutes to spare I made the deadline for the Whiff of joy DT call. I wasn't going to participate because I didn't get any WOJ images until yesterday. My dear friend sent me some and I thought it would be too late, but I felt so inspired to color some of them in and once I started I couldn't stop. I love the Charlotte and Charlie stamps.

I had a lot of fun doing this card. I didn't want to go with the usual shabby look of Basic Grey papers, but I wanted to do something different. I took out the fushia and blue/green of the patterned paper. I also cut away the cat that is sitting next to the girl to make her fit within the frame. The frame is a die from qk cut in white bling cardstock and then made darker with a distress ink. Lately I've been using my jewelry items for my cards and I thought the beads would look wonderful as Christmas ornaments. The blue/green part is embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and the girl is colored with alcoholmarkers. The handwarmer is flocked with white flock, it looks so furry and warm :)
Hope you like it.

If you would like this stamp or any of the other great ones that Katharina is selling, go to She has a bunch of specials and a flat rate shipping of only €1.30 within europe (until dec. 21:st).
