I found a little time for crafting and made a card with some beautiful warm greens, browns and golds. My niece is turning 8 on Feb. 1st and her birthday party is on Sunday. I'm going to give this card to her. I hope she likes it. I also entered it into the following challenges:
Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog - Sketch by Gio. It's a great design and her card is beautiful as usual.
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 97 Blooming Gorgeous
Here's my card...
Dreamy Willow with Flowers
I just love this Dreamy Willow with Flowers from Whiff of Joy Stamps. It's designed by Elisabeth Belle who, in my opinion, has designed some of the most beautiful stamps for crafting. If you would like a stamp of your own, you can get it HERE. The gorgeous warm and rich dp's are from the Basic Grey Origins collection. The cs is, of course, Stampin' Up. I used MS punches for texture and diamond Stickles to give the card some sparkle. I have no idea what company made the sentiment, but I stamped it with Stampin' Up Chocolate. I used my Nestabilities to cut out the image and background. Afterwards, I applied Distress Ink Tea Dye around the edges of the image. Willow's dress looked a little flat so I added some more Stickles and K&Company gems for a little something shiny. I didn't have a golden yellow ribbon to match the dp's, so I used a Copic marker to color an off white ribbon that I already had. Finally, I added mini roses and aged them a bit with a little ink.
Here you can see the Copics used to color Willow.
I hope you have a fantastic day. Try to find some time to create something beautiful : )
Ciao for now,
