Whiff of Joy Challenge #15

Here's my submission to this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge. This week the lovely and talented Katharina provided the wonderful sketch. I used Melinda Blowing Kisses - one of my faves, BG Gypsy/Romani DP, SU cardstock, Martha Stewart punches for heart border and love sentiment, SU and Stamping Bella ribbons. Image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Wausau paper and coloured with Copics. I've added some Crystal Stickles to the wings. The card looks like its missing something when viewed on the screen. Perhaps I should have added some brads or flowers but sometimes simple is ok too.

Sorry the post is late and short but I'll be at work for most of this week in training so my crafting time is limited and a bit rushed.

Hugs,
Maria
