PaperPlay meets Whiff of Joy Challenges

Good morning. We have a very sweet challenge on PaperPlay this week -  Cutie Patootie :D So we would love to see you break out your cutest of images and ink them up!! 

I just couldn't resist using this uuuuber cute stamp from Whiff of Joy, called Henry with Love Balloon - which also happens to be the prize for this week's challenge. I think you'll agree he's definitely a cutie. I followed Jane's fabby sketch on Whiff of Joy Challenges.

He's been coloured using copic markers - E35, E33, E31, E30, R29, R27, R24, R20 and a tiny amount of stickles is added to the balloon. I used classic circles nesties to cut him out and the scalloped circle nesties on for the red card behind him.

The papers are from a pile in my drawer and for the life of me I can't remember what they are called. I've machine stitched them all. 

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearl topped pins from the local drapery store. The pearl brad securing the bow to the ribbon is also from Whiff of Joy.
