Two faces of Charlotte

I've been "AWOL" from this blog for two weeks lying in bed with a very bad back - a strained/contracted muscle didn't allow me to move naturally. Better said, it didn't allow me to move at all :D. In the last two days I've been feeling normal again and I thought it's about time I tried my Whiff of Joy stamps.
  • For the Carol singing Charlotte I used Katharina's sketch #26, the one that was used last week for Papertake Weekly Challenge (it would have been nice to get my card done in due time).
I've messed things up with the layout somewhere along the way (with proportions and stuff) and the card doesn't look too great.
But I still love it :)

I've used Dovecraft Christmas designer paper [Tis The Season] and a Dovecraft Crystal Effects 3D Sticker for the greeting.

  • The next Charlotte is the Angel one - it's so adorable I had to colour it in girly hues :)
Plus, the card will go to my best friend and she's crazy about pinks and mauves and angels. I put a bit of glitter on the wings and on the dress too (not sure it shows in the photo).

The lovely background paper is from Tracey (Fred She Said) - Fred's Flowersv3 - Pink Blossoms Kit.
The nice little stamps used for the sentiment are a gift from my great friend Sue (they arrived 4 days ago and made me very happy).
Now everybody will surely notice - LOL - that I've got myself some nice scalloped punches which I will be using a lot from now on.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
