WHIFF OF JOY CHALLENGE NO. 22


My next card is for Whiff of Joy Challenge No. 22 - Use the colour "Green". I must admit, green is not one of my most favourite colours, but in the end was not too bad, I might have even overdone the green a bit! I have used one of the new stamps from the Whiff of Joy Spring Collection called "Willow with Flowers". She has been coloured with a combination of WC Brushes, and Sukura Gel Pens. The image was cut with a round nesty, and layered on card in two shades of green. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad called "Urban Prairie". I had a small piece of green spotty ribbon, and thought this would be an ideal time to make use of it, so simply stuck it below my stamped sentiment. The card has been finished off with some paper flowers, in various shades of green, and these have been held together with some gem brads, and then a few darker green brads, all from my craft stash. Hope you have enjoyed your visit, and thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a lovely day!
