One Card, Two Challenges: Whiff of Joy #27 and Cute Card Thursday #57!

When I finished this card last night for the Whiff of Joy Challenge I realized that it also fits the Cute Card Thursday Challenge
 
For the WOJ challenge Heather gave us a wonderful sketch this week.  I had this image colored and matched up to the DP for some time and thought it would be perfect for the sketch.  Willow is colored with Copics and surrounded by green and purple paper flowers from Oriental Trading Company and aqua flowers from Fabric Fancies.  The DP and green paper are from The Paper Studio and the lavender is from Paper Pizazz.  (These have been in my stash for a long time!) I distressed the edges of all the layers, which is the Cute Card Challenge: Getting Edgy.  Add some rickrack and a pretty little charm and ta-da!  At the last minute I added stick-on letters to spell "mother" and will add a sentiment for one of the sweet moms I know. 

There are more terrific cards at both of these sites, so jog on over for a look and play along, too!
Thanks for stopping by!

Blooming gorgeous, Barb! I love those WOJ images and this is coloured to perfection. The colours you've chosen are delish! And I'm loving the way you've used the rickrack (...must get me some of that, he he!). Hugs, Sem x
