Whiff of Joy Mojo

I combined two challenges with this card. For the Whiff of Joy challenge we had a recipe of three patterned papers, two flowers and either a brad or a button. I followed the Mojo Monday 74 sketch. Melinda was stamped with Stazon and colored with Prismacolor pencils, blended with baby oil. Added Watercolor Stickles to her wings, Patina to her necklace and bracelet, and Fruit Punch to the flower on her bookmark. I cut her out with a rectangle Nestabilities, then chalked around her. Blue background is Basic Grey Lilikate, layered on DP from HOTP. The mat behind Melinda is also from HOTP. My two flowers are actually from the same sheet of HOTP DP. : ) The pink butterfly is actually a brad by Creative Charms. Have no idea where the ribbon came from, was a piece in my stash. Sentiment was stamped on same BG CS and cut out with scalloped Nestabilities.

Stamps: Whiff of Joy Melinda Reading Book, Crafty Secrets Glamour Girls.
Paper: The Paper Studio, Basic Grey Lilikate, Hot Off the Press.
Ink: Stazon, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Nestabilities, Stickles, ribbon, Fab Brad by Creative Charms, Pebbles chalks.
