Whiff of Joy Sneak Peak: City Girls II Collection

Are you excited about the new release from Whiff of Joy??

Today I'm showing you a sneak peak of the new City Girls II Collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell.  This is a follow-up to the first City Girls Collection.  Her images are always so gorgeous and this collection is no exception.  Not only are there some wonderful "city" themed images, but there are also two graduation images.  The Whiff of Joy Design team and the Whiff of Joy Guest Designers will be showing you some sneak peaks (which started yesterday).  Make sure to visit their links on my right sidebar!

The new images will be released on June 25th so make sure to visit the Whiff of Joy website when the come out!

On this card, I've used three new images from the upcoming release.  I added some Diamond Glaze on the ladies' glasses, but again, my poor lighting and camera didn't catch it very well :(  I created the flowers by hand from some lace laying around.  I apologize - I don't remember what the technique is called nor where to find the tutorial! All you have to do to make them is do a little sewing.  If anyone can help out and tell me what/where the tutorial is, I would greatly appreciate it :)

Edited: I finally find a tutorial for the flower! Here's a great tutorial on this blog post:  For mine, I just layered two of the flowers then stuck a brad in the middle.  Have fun making your own!

Images: Whiff of Joy City Girls II Collection (releasing June 25th); Medium: Distress Inks; Paper: Cosmo Cricket; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, lace, pearls, BG brad
