Shop Til You Drop with WOJ!

Good morning all! How's your week going? It was my DO yesterday so I went and did a bit of shopping with my gorgeous husband to be. We bought ourself an i-pod touch with some money we had got for christmas. It will be invaluable for our holiday in a few weeks time, lots of travelling to get there ( 3 fights!! :-( ) so the music will help pass the time! I also bought myself some lovely new summer clothes, for my holiday that is, it's definately not warm enough here in the UK at the minute!

Anyhow, it's wednesday today so time for you to join us at Whiff Of Joy for our new challenge this week! This week we have a wonderful sketch by the super talented Bev to follow! I just loved using this sketch Bev, thanks so much sweetie!



Materials
Image: From the new City Girl range available from Whiff Of Joy. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

CS: SU Old Olive & Whisper white

Papers: Basic Grey Lemonade

Sentiment: Elzybells

Tools: Nesties, sponges for distressing, MS Double Loop border punch

Misc: SU Crocheted Flower, Pearl brad and pink flower from stash


I am so happy with this card! I just love the colours pink and green together and I at last got to use my MS punch that I got from QVC the other week! It's also the first time I used these gorgeous crocheted flowers from SU. My mum got them for me for christmas!

Please make sure you stop by the challenge blog and take a look at all the other DT cards for some wonderful inspiration! I can't wait to see what you create with Bev's sketch this week!

Thanks for stoppping by and have a great day!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
