Birthday Regency Stripe with a Whiff of Strawberries

Whiff of Joy Challenge #81 is a Photo Challenge. Both the colours & the image suggested "vintage" to me &, as the card is for a girl's birthday & we are in the midst of summer & Wimbledon Tennis, it seemed rather apt to use the Regency Stripe with strawberries motif patterned paper I had. The sketch I used (flipped to give the mirror image so that my image is facing the butterfly) was provided by Bev Rochester for the current Create4Fun  challenge.

Stamps Whiff of Joy Kneeling Willow (image), Whimsy Proud Momma (sentiment), Artemio  Ref.10001037 (swirl).
Inks etc.... Memento Tuxedo Black (image), Brilliance Lightning Black (sentiment plus inking paper & cardstock edges).
Colouring Copic Ciaos, Inkssentials White Opaque Pen, ProMarker (butterfly charm).
Cardstock Black, textured glossy black, dark cream, dark & light green from "stash".
Papers Nancy Watt Collection from Making Cards July 2008.
Punches Woodware (ovals & scalloped ovals, scalloped circles, flowers).
Charm GCS Imports Ltd.
The gems & brad were from "stash".

Fabulous card!! Thank you so much for playing along with our challenge! I just got your message and don't worry...we recently opened up the challenges to allow any image. This is one of the few WOJ stamps that I don't have yet. I only started carrying them a few months ago so I started with the newest ones first and each time I reorder, I add on a few of the older images. Eventually I will have them all!! Thanks again for playing along!! We will have a new challenge on monday!
