Challenge #80 at Whiff of Joy

Good evening dear friends... I managed to get a card made for the Whiff of Joy challenge this week.  The gorgeous Willow was kindly stamped by a friend.  I have wanted this Willow for ever, but have not bought her as she's part of a kit and I just want her!  I wish they'd sell her as a separate stamp.   All you need to do is follow the sketch at WoJ.  Here's my card for your enjoyment... I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it

The base of my card is a lovely turquoise. The DP comes from a pack of 6x6 sheets. Can't recall where I purchased it from. [Edit: Just remembered, I purchased it from a local shop called Merrypak]. Flowers, ribbon and pearls from my stash. The ribbon is new. Lovely silky satin ribbon, have it in blue and pink too! The nestie is Label 4, new from Scrap-a-Doodles, one of my favourite on-line stores. They are based in Pretoria, SA.

Added a bit of glaze to Willow's pumps and bouquet. The butterfly was punched using my MS Butterfly punch. Punched it twice to form a shadow effect.  And because I adore this Willow so much, here's a close up pic of her. I used Copics to colour her in.
I hope they like this one over at Whiff of Joy.  That's it for tonight folks... I'm off to watch Germany vs Australia in 5 minutes.  Enjoy!  hugs Sharon x
