Whiff of Joy Challenge #95 --- Janes's Sketch

Now that we are past the holidays I've been able to visit challenges I had been neglecting.  Whiff of Joy challenge is one of my favorites and DT member Jane provided the sketch for this challenge.  With the cold spell we've been having lately I have treated myself to a nice cup of hot chocolate every evening, which made me think of this image of Willow.  It's one of the original WOJ images but I never tire of it.

I colored the image of Willow with Copics in a combination to match the Basic Grey Sugared dp collection.  I love this paper and dread the day when I run out of it!  Pink and green is one of  my favorite combinations. The embellishments are rather simple: some antique lace, a Prima flower with a sheer bow, pink pearls, and a charm that says "Some things are meant to be."  The butterfly is a MS punch that I positioned over one of the flowers on the dp then lined up some pearls along its body.

Here is the inside.  Since I often don't know what I will be using the card for I leave the inside blank for a handwritten note.  I'm thinking this might be a note for my future daughter-in-law, whom we all love so much!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope the coming week will be extra special for you.  Be sure to hop over to the WOJ Challenge and take a look at the DT's fabulous projects, as well as the participants.  There's still time to jump into the challenge if you haven't already.
