Whiff of Joy Challenge #33 --- Charm

My goodness, I've had a lot of posting lately! But that's good! Fun challenges, awards, our fabulous Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge Design Team -- good stuff!

This post is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge #33. This week we could make our own layout and only two rules: must add a charm and, of course, use any of the adorable WOJ stamps. I love the new summer kit, so here is Willow with a basket of strawberries. She is so pretty and those berries look scrumptious!

Card details:
Image colored with Copics: Skin E00 and E11; Hair Y11, Y15, E33; Dress BG72; Apron E95 and YR21; Basket E53
Designer Paper: Laundry Line from My Mind's Eye
Butterfly charm: jewelry-making department at Michael's.
Flowers: larger flowers from Michael's (forgot the brand) and centers of flowers from little bunches available in the bridal section of Michael's -- lots of sparkly little accents for less than $2.00!
Gold-colored stick-on "pearls" also from bridal department at Michael's.

This card went together really quickly. I guess because I love this craft so much!!
Thank you for stopping by! I welcome your comments, even if it's just to say "Hello!" Here's wishing you a fulfilling week with lots of time for your art!
