My Crafty Heart DT Card - Willow in Summer Breeze

Afternoon! Hope you are all well... here's another card for My Crafty Heart using one the wonderful Whiff of Joy stamps that are in store... it's the gorgeous Willow in the Summer Breeze - isn't she sweet!

All available from My Crafty Heart

STAMP: Whiff of Joy - 'Willow in the Summer Breeze'
PAPERS: My Mind's Eye - 'Nutmeg'
DIE CUTS: Memory Box - 'Pepita Border' and 'Willow Dragonfly'
FLOWER: Prima Cloissone - 'Jewel Box'
CLEAR GEMS : Hero Arts - 'Small Mixed Gemstones'
PEARLS: Melissa Frances - 'Trinkets & Baubles'

Sentiment is from Lili of the Valley....

I decided to try something different and use the Pepita Border to look like grasses? not sure whether it has worked though? keep changing my mind as to whether I like it or not!! LOL I do love these new Indie Chic MME Papers though - I find it hard to break into them.... and I've used one of my favourite flowers - they are So jewels....

The gorgeous Willow has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I masked her to create the sky background and used a cloud template and Memento Bahamas Blue Ink. As she was floating in the clouds... I had to make a grass border... hope it's not too naff !!! LOL

Ok ... of now to finish building that Ark.... LOL... my daughter is at the Download Festival at Donington Park... and she texted me to say it is mud, mud glorious mud.... LOL - ooh rather her than me... I like my creature comforts now I am getting old... hee hee!! although I am a little envious that she gets to see Black Sabbath... I saw them in the 80s but Ozzy wasn't with them then... :-(

But what a treat it is to arrive at your blog and to see this sweet beauty, such beautiful papers, colours, embellies, really love this! And I'm glad your bus card made top 5, I would have been happy to eat my shoe though, lol! Big hugs, Ira xox

I love this Willow and she looks gorgeous in that turquoise blue, matching those gorgeous papers - I love those flowers too :) I think I used up my packet:( I am so glad too Sue, that Ira didn't need to eat her shoe as well - and congrats on your win, I loved that bus (Black Sabbath were a bit too heavy for me in the they were good at Donnington though!)
