A Day that Sparkles

Whew, we're past Monday already :)

Today I have my first creation to share as a Whiff of Joy guest designer.  I was pleasantly surprised to receive this wonderful May Store Kit - Aladin (1001 Nights) from Katharina yesterday. I just couldn't wait to ink up the stamps and get to coloring!  These stamps are incredibly detailed and it wasn't until I started coloring it that I noticed all the little things that really make these images so wonderful.

Hope you're having a wonderful start to your week!

Paper: BasicGrey Capella; Medium: Distress Inks; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Prima flowers, flowers from Wild Orchids, ribbon, Stickles
