Whiff of Joy Challenge #12

I had so much fun with this design. I started with plain cardstock. When I placed all the layers together, the card seemed too bland so I decided to spice it with some stamped flourishes. I really liked how it turned out but there was still something missing. I distressed the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink and added silver stickles (they do not show well in the pic but the border is all sparkly) and finally I was happy with the result.



Stamps: Whiff of Joy, Autumn Leaves
Colors:
Ranger Distress ink - Faded Jeans
Copic sketch markers - N0, N2, C3, E000, E00, B91, B92
Twinkling H2O's - Sandollar, Rich Cocoa
