WILLOW WITH HOT CHOCOLATE


Hello ladies, I am so excited today, my order of Whiff of Joy stamps arrived, and I could not wait to try them out, so todays Challenge for me is : Papertake Weekly - "Autumn Haze", I have chosen one of my new Whiff of Joy stamps called "Willow with Hot Chocolate". Isn't she beautiful? I love them all, and I can't wait to use some of the others too. Anyway, the Challenge was Autumn Haze, either using autumn stamps, colours or anything associated with autumn. I have tried to go with the look of autumn colours, so I have coloured Willow, in oranges, and browns. Then I have layered her on some pale yellow pearlescent cardstock. The base card is a lovely Chocolate brown pearescent cardstock. The backing paper I have printed off from Funky Hands "Funky Seasons" Paper Collection CD. I have finished the card off with some Orange Organza ribbon, and some paper flowers.
I really enjoyed this Challenge, don't know if it had anything to do with the excitement of my new arrival of stamps.
Hope you enjoyed your visit, and thanks for dropping in. Happy crafting x
