Whiff of Joy Challenge #40 --- Donalda's Sketch

Whiff of Joy's challenge this week features a terrific sketch by Donalda. She is a very talented designer and we can always count on a good challenge from her. All the cards by the design team are amazing, so be sure to check them out here.

I am into making Christmas cards right now in order to be prepared for the holidays. It is fast approaching and I hope to have plenty on the market in the next few weeks. So, I used Donalda's sketch and an image of Willow with a Muff for one of my holiday cards... and here it is:

This precious image of Willow was one of the first I purchased from WOJ last year. That was when my love affair with WOJ started and I am still totally hooked! When I colored this image last night I was in a pink mood so I used Copic R20 for her outfit. I love the softness of this card. Layering white and pink Constellation Jade card stock added a nice shimmer. Silver always goes so well with pink and I just bought the beautiful snowflake ribbon at Hobby Lobby. I added a delicate piece of paper doily for the snowflake look, some white mulberry paper for whimsy and a filigree disk for embellishment. Also touches of bling on the Nestie die cut around Willow. This card is going to be hard to part with!

Here is Donalda's image. Thanks, Donalda, for a wonderful sketch!

There are some very exciting things going on at Whiff of Joy! They just celebrated their first anniversary and put some new and adorable Party Animals stamps in their shop. Not to mention the Fall Stamp Kit that is still in the pre-order stage! I can't wait to get mine!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate your time and comments and love to visit your blogs, too!
