Hello everyone, hope you are all well. My first day back at work yesterday, and boy do I wish I was back on leave! Thank heavens for small mercy's - at least we have a long weekend coming up! Anyway, I have two posts today, and my first card is for Sketch and Stash Challenge No. 17. I received the new Whiff of Joy Autumn Collection while I was off for the week, and have therefore decided to use one of these stamps from that Collection for this card. It has been coloured with Sakura Gel Pens, and then trimmed down and layered on pale yellow and pink card. The backing papers are from one of my fav Basic Grey paper pads called Porcelain, and to finish the card off - a stamped sentiment and paper flowers with pearl brads - all from my craft stash.
