Willow in three challenges


This week's Whiff of Joy challenge is to use paper piecing. I love paper piecing and I think it works really well with "Willow with hot chocolate". I've used papers from a K&K collection called Que Sera Sera, which has beautiful rich, saturated colours. The only parts of Willow that are not paper pieced are her hands and face; I've paper pieced her armchair as well, giving it a metallic bronze frame.

I've followed a great sketch by Beatrix for the Friday Sketchers challenge this week, that worked really well, there's enough room on the card to show off the papers.


Cute Card Thursday's challenge is to use a tag somewhere on a card; I've cut down a small tag for the sentiment and added it to the card. The flowers are a mixture, mostly Prima, with faux brads from Craftwork Cards in their centres.

I love these papers and I think Willow has to be one of my all-time favourite stamps, I'm going to have a hard time giving this card away :).
