Whiff of Joy Challenge # 73

Hi Ladies

As you know, I regularly enter the Whiff of Joy Challenge (I want that blinkie...lol) and this week they have a lovely recipe for you to follow. It is 3 Papers, 2 Buttons and 1 Ribbon.  Here's my little number which I've just created for your enjoyment....  Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.

The lovely DP is from the Watercolour Rainbow Collection "Whimsy".  Isn't it fabulous?  This was my inspiration for colouring in Shopping Willow with copics - matches perfectly don't you think?  I used both sides of this DP and as my third paper I've mattered the DP onto navy card.  I received a wonderful gift from Sandra in the UK... a Martha Stewart border punch (iron gate), which I collected from the post office today.  Just had to use it to show my appreciation once again for this lovely gift.  Thanks so much Sandra, you're a real honey!  Now I too have a MS punch!  Addtional embellies for a bit of class are my lovely pearls which I are from Paola's shop, as well as the cherry blossom and ribbon.

Hope you've been having a super crafting weekend so far. I'll be popping around to visit you soon.  Take care, hugs Sharon x
