Willow with Cookies - Whiff of Joy Challenge #26










Again another card for the stock pile, yeah!!! I am entering this into the Whiff of Joy challenge! And we were to use Black and White with ONE splash of colour!!! What is it with these challenges at the moment, bring back the sketches, my poor brain is going into overload!!! Seriously I am enjoying these challenges.

The paper I used was a mistake buy, I think it has been in my stash for 2 years and the worse thing is I bought a pack for Ruth too!! Well they looked good on the outside of the pack (sorry Ruth).

See what I did???? I decorated the inside too!!!!!!!!!!!

I used a stripy dotty strip of paper as a paper ribbon underneath the lace. Willow is mounted on 3D foam pads, one flower is stuck to the edge and the other two straight to the card.
