My entry to the Whiff of Joy Guest designer challenge

I have stayed up until midnight to finish this card especially for the Whiff of joy guest designer challenge. I started the card this morning but had to leave it as we went to our friends house for a BBQ today. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous and we had a great time .

I have created this card using last weeks sketch from Friday sketchers. I really enjoyed this one and can see me using it again. The image is of course from Whiff of Joy. I have coloured her with copic markers and use a highlighter to add in - well some highlights. 

The challenge was to make a card using a Whiff of Joy image using the colours Red, Orange and one other. We were aloud to use a neutral colour also. I have used green as my extra colour. The pale pale yellow is the neutral colour which has been used to mount my papers with. It actually looks darker in the picture but then again with it being so late the colours all look slightly different as it isn't the best light. 

Here is the card 




Sorry for the poor picture quality. 
The papers are from the bloom and grow collection I love these they are gorgeous. The raffia lace is from quixotic paperie and the orange ribbon I bought on ebay. The little butterflys were punched out using a punch I borrowed from my friend Fi today isn't it cute. 

Here is a close up of the image



I hope you like my card, fingers crossed it will be good enough to win me a place on the design team. It is a team I have always wanted the chance to be on. I entered once before but didn't get through so I thought I would wait until I had improved a little before I entered again. The competition closes tommorrow so I am just in time :) 
Have a great Sunday whatever you are up to - I am going for a run in the morning to train for the race for life and will be crafting in the afternoon whoooppeeeee :)
