Whiff of Joy Challenges - Aqua, Pink & Cream

Hi. Today I have 2 cards to share. The first one is for Whiff of Joy Challenges. This challenge didn't appeal to me one bit when I read it.. no sirrreeee!! Aqua, Pink & Cream? - these colours didn't look right in my head.. but on paper they go really really well together!!

My stamp is called I am Sorry Gnome but it's really versatile and I've used it as a Birthday image. Coloured with copics to match the theme of the challenge - R81, 83 85. BG000, 10, 11. E00, 01, 11, 50, 51, 53. I handcut the tag and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps. 

Challenges - 
Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle & Shine
Crafty Emma - Embellish It
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - Flower, ribbon, bling
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy - 2 papers, 2 embellishments, 1 ribbon
Tellen's Place  - Anything goes

My next card is from Whiff of Joy's new stamp kit. Single sets from this kit will be released on June 1st and pre-orders for the Autumn kit will start on June 15th. 

Challenges - 
Card Cupids - Bright and Bold
Allsorts - Birthday
Card Makin' Mamas - 1 image, 2 papers, 3 different types of embellishments
Paper Cutz - Teacher appreciation
 Have a wonderful day
