Hi there - how is everyone tonight! I'm in a great was Back to School night at the middle school and I got to see a lot of people I hadn't seen all summer! We could have been out of there a lot sooner, but my nickname is Chattie Pattie for a reason!!!

I just recently received my order of Whiff of Joy stamps and I couldn't wait to get inky with them...and, they are having a DT call along with their sketch challenge this week! So, for this card, I used the beautiful Melinda with Bouquet stamp and paired it up with the colors from the Color Throwdown and added some paper piecing (her pants) and sparkle for a few other challenges!

I love her beautiful fairy wings and I really enjoyed using this color combination too! Hope you like it! (p.s. this pic was taken at an angle to reduce glare, so it doesn't look square, but it is!)

Whiff of Joy #86 - Jane's sketch
The Color Throwdown #107 - pink, red, yellow, green
Simon Says Stamp - Paper Piecing
Flutter By Wednesday #119 - wings!
Wild Orchid #4 - Sparkle
