Pretty Willow


I should be at work today, but Edward hurt his head at school and I had to fetch him home this morning.  Whilst he has been recovering I've made very good use of my time and made a card for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge

The challenge this week is a recipe:- 6 Brads, 3 Patterned Papers and 2 Flowers.

Here's my card:

I used the WOJ Willow with Flower Basket stamp.  I stamped her onto Manga Art Board using black Memento ink, I then coloured her with my Copics.  I added a little sprinkling of glitter too.

The papers are from the MME Wild Asparagus 6X6 Stack, which I received the other day from Fran, they were part of her mini candy that I won.  Thank you Fran, they're beautiful. 

I stamped and embossed a flourish to sit behind the flowers for extra detail.

The pale green card and brads are from my stash and the flowers are Prima.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like it.  I feel I've made very good use of my unexpected time at home today lol!!!
