Whiff of Joy #23 --- Donalda's Sketch

Donalda is a very talented designer and for Whiff of Joy Challenge this week she has given us a lovely sketch to build on. I already had some images colored so it didn't take any time for me to put this card together (and I didn't want to be under the wire like last week!)

I used Willow with flowers in an Easter theme. Willow is colored with Copics and framed in ovals cut with Nesties on my Cuttlebug. The DP is a very pretty Easter egg scrapbook paper I found at Michaels (forgot to get the brand name). The eggs are so pretty that it was a shame to cover them up so I cut some out, mounted them on white CS, added some embellies and 3D mounted them with foam tape. The lavendar pieces are scraps from other Spring cards and the ribbon is a swatch from a roll I found in the $1 bin at Michaels. I added a sweet heart charm with a cross embedded with tiny rhinestones. Oh, and check out the centers of the flowers --- who can resist little yellow bunny brads? All this lays on a bed of lattice patterned vellum which covers lavender textured CS.

Hmmm. The more I look at it, the more I like it. What do you think? Thank you, Donalda, for a very nice sketch!
