Whiff of Joy Challenge #62

Hello Everyone and Happy Sunday - hope you've had a lovely weekend - mine has been good, but just gone so quick!

I have made another Thank You card, this time following the fabulous sketch on the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog this week. All the DT samples are wonderful and so inspirational - I just had to have a go.

However, I did struggle with my card. I stamped my sentiment onto the back of a chipboard label from a top I bought in Asda (there's re-using and recycling for you!!). When I threaded the ribbon through (which, by the way, was from a gift set I had sometime ago - hey recycling again, what's got into me (LOL!) - the sentiment was a bit thick to stick on easily, and I managed to get it really skew wiff - managed to straighten it a bit, but not perfect! I also wish I hadn't made the mat for the image quite so big. I was becoming really disappointed with my card. You know how it is when you have something in mind and can't wait to give it a go, and then it just doesn't go the way you want it to - its so frustrating and disappointing!!

But once I added the flowers, which have had some glitter spray added, I felt happier with it, and I quite like it now!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you are able to pop back again sometime.

Love, Andrea xx
