Whiff of Joy #95

Hi girls. Thanks for calling in today. I hope you enjoy your visit. If there is anything here that motivates you to craft then I'll be more than happy. I hope you are having a great day.
I'm off to hospital today for an echocardiogram to see that the old ticker is doing it's job well so I am hoping that the test is fairly straightforward.
Anyway my card today is for the latest Whiff of Joy challenge where we were given a fabulous sketch to follow by Jane. I have used "Willow with Flowers" and coloured her using my Copics. The papers are printed from one of my CD Roms and I have used Bazzil Dots. The butterflies are cut using a Martha Stewart punch and an unnamed punch. The large flowers are cut using a Marianne Designs die and the gems and ribbons are from my stash.
I hope you might have a minute to leave a comment letting me know what you think of this card. Your views and opinions are much valued. Enjoy the rest of your crafting day and above all stay safe and healthy.


  1. Wow Fiona!! This is gorgeous!! You really made Willow come to life!! I love the blue, your coloring and your take on Jane's sketch.

    I love all the detailing on this card. The lovely die cut flowers peeking out and the pearls on them. That gorgeous deep blue butterfly and the detailing pattern on the circle around the image.

  17. Missed some lovely cards in the last few days. Love the new slant on an easel card. Very effective. This blue one is gorgeous. One of my favourite WOJ stamps and beautifully coloured.
