Whiff of Joy - GDT card


Hello,
Hope everyone is ok. I have made a card today using the Whiff of Joy new Guardian Angel spring release image Melinda with Bouquet. I received the inspiration to make this card from a sweet, lovely lady I have met here in blogland. Her name is Vanessa. She sent me an awesome box full of the most beautiful flowers in so many colours as a wonderful gesture of friendship. Vanessa makes the most beautiful cards so please go and visit her lovely blog. Thank you Vanessa so much. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to receive them and I immediately thought of making this card. Don't they go beautifully with the paper by prima and I think they suit my image so well. I have coloured Melinda with distress inks. I have distressed the background with tattered rose. Then stamped swirls with antique linen. I have distressed the flowers with worn lipstick and also added some stickles to them and the tulle. 
I have also been sent this award from the lovely Karen.
It really warms my heart that through my blog I am meeting the most wonderful, sweet, kindhearted people on this planet. So thank you girls so much for thinking of me.
Thank you so much for looking.
love
kim x
