Whiff of Joy Challenge #1

After I made my first WOJ card yesterday, I found the Whiff of Joy blog with their first challenge, so had to make another card to go play that - darn it! :) It was a fun sketch to follow.
The paisley background DP kind of swallows the base circle, but if you look closely you can see it and IRL it shows up really well. It was a doily (that word looks funny) I had sitting on my table from ??. I sliced it up and folded into a smaller circle, inked it with Velvet Colorbox and then tapped on it with Distress Ink and smeared that with a Q-tip to soften the edges. Colored the main image with Prisma pencils and chalked around her (they shimmer nicely in the light). Added Stickles to the flowers on her pants and bookmark, and Liquid Pearls to her wings. Cut her out with a circle Nestabilities and then a scalloped mat and popped her up on dimensionals. Stamped a ribbon from Prima onto the vertical strip and added some Dew Drops to the other. Attached it all to the burgundy card base. Sentiment is from a set called "Will -n- Way", rounded and inked the corners and attached with dimensionals. I love square cards. : )

Stamps: Whiff of Joy Melinda Reading Book, Will -n- Way sentiment, Prima Mktg.
Paper: Paper Studio CS, My Minds Eye DP.
Ink: Colorbox Queues, Distress Ink.
Accessories: Nestabilities, Prismacolors, doily, chalks, Dew Drops, Stickles, Liquid Pearls.
