New Pocket Card for a Whiff of Joy challenge

Whiff of Joy challenge blog are celebrating their 2nd anniversary - congratulations  ladies!  Their theme this week is to make a Thank You card / Thanksgiving card... remember to use a Whiff of Joy stamp.  Simon Says Stamps are the sponsors - a $25.00 gift certificate is up for grabs...woohoo...

As I had the lovely Whiff of Joy's, Willow writing Recipes, already inked and coloured in, I quickly whipped up this card for the challenge.  It is my first attempt at making a Pocket Card and I found the tutorial for it here.  Incredibly easy to follow, so give it a go!  As you all know I just love Elisabeth Bell's illustrations and this Willow must be one of her prettiest, don't you think?

The gorgeous lace and flower was a gift from my blogfriend Amelia... Isn't it divine?  Just had to use it with this DP which I, unfortunately, only bought 1 sheet of a while ago.  It is Raspberry Tea Collection's "Summer Break". Gorgeous paper to work with.

Here are a few more pics to share with you all...

Willow was coloured in with Copics.  The Thank You sentiment is new, purchased from one of our local craft shops. I fell in love with it when I saw it and it came in handy for this card.
Here is the card, out of the pocket.  I used one of my freebie stamps to stamp a few lines to write my message on.  And then finally, a close up of the super cute Willow...

She looks so deep in thought, doesn't she?   Well, that's it for now folks.  It seems ages since I entered a challenge.  I hope they like this effort over at Whiff of Joy...

Take care, thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments.  Hugs Sharon x

Sharon, this card is wonderful. I love the idea of a pocket card but I have not tried one yet. I love this image as I am a baker at a high school, definitely one I am going to have to get. As always your coloring is beautiful.
