Whiff of Joy DT - July Release Blog Hop and Whiff of Joy Challenge Karina's Sketch

Woohoo!!  Welcome to the Whiff of Joy July blog hop and also my card for the new challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges which is a gorgeous sketch by Karina!!  If you're following on the hop you should have arrived here from Colleen's gorgeous blog, if not and you want to follow the hop with a chance to win prizes, then hop on back to the beginning at the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas blog!  I have created a birthday card for my brother using two of the fabulous new stamps.  Aren't these two just perfect for boys/men's cards!!?!?  My brother loves to watch the Gran Prix so they were absolutely perfect for his card!
I coloured the images with copics and added glossy accents to the windows and visor of Henry's helmet.
I added some ribbon from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and a button from my stash.
I also used some of the fabulous letter pearls from Whiff of Joy to spell out his name and the sentiment and ticket die are also from Whiff of Joy!!
You can see the glossy accents much better in this close up!
As you can see Henry's visor looks great with glossy accents added to it!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Now it is time to hop on over to Angie's gorgeous blog! x
