Hey gorgeous

Have you seen that Katharina - the owner of Whiff of joy has a guest design call? She will be having a new call every other month. You can read all about it on her blog. This time she wanted us to follow a sketch.

One of my new year's resolution is actually to get on the team or at least be a guest designer for Whiff of joy so it is great timing. I will have 6 chances to join this year. Ok, on to my card.

I used papers from a pad that I just fell inlove with. I saw it on a blog somewhere and wanted to get it. I googled it and it was just one place that had them. And they just had 4 pads left, so I got 2, lol. This pad and BG's eskimo is my fav line of all times. I just adore the colourcombo and the patterns are gorgeous. I'm actually saving the rest of the pads for a project that I will keep, like a travelalbum. I got so inspired to use it straight away though and what better reason than a DT call?

I used autumn Charlotte that I got before Christmas. I got 16 stamps from Whiff of joy which I haven't had the chance to use yet. She was the one I wanted to use first since Charlotte&Charlie and the animals drawn by Alison Acton are my favourites. She's also dressed the way I dress so it was fun colouring her. She's me if I would be a cartoon :)

The bird is made using a qk die, CB embossing folder, a flower cut apart and the petals glued on the tail. The pink border is cut out twice with a spellbinder borderabilities and glued opposite eachother.

Charlotte is coloured with my beloved promarkers. I think I did very well colouring her.

I used dimensional glaze and bling on some flowers I cut out from one of the patterned sheets.

I forgot to say that I'm also adding this card to this week's challenge at Simon says stamp with "punch it" as their theme and charismacardz with "fruity colours" as theirs.

Hope you enjoyed my card as much as I did making it. If you like it - leave me a comment. I really apreciate your comments.

Promarkers: blush, oatmeal, ice grey1,3, cool grey5, tea green, cool aqua, duck egg, apple, pear green, baby pink, rose pink, cerise.
Paper: Tiffany's from We r memory keepers
Other: Qk birddie, spellbinders borderabilities, cuttlebug embossing folder, flowers, bling, dimensional glaze.
