Fourth Whiff of Joy Challenge

Here's the fourth Whiff of Joy Challenge. This time we get to make a card using autumn colors. Oh, and I just saw many gorgeous colors while in Vermont visiting my daughter!!! We stayed at a gorgeous B&B near a floating bridge, and the mist on the lake in the early morning was ethereal. I decided to use Willow's arrived while I was gone, and seems fitting since there was a parlour in the inn where we could sit and read or just relax. Now this is Willow's chair, but when she went to get more hot chocolate, Kitty hopped into her chair. :) I stamped the chair image twice, once on CS and a second time on some DP. Cut out the DP for the cushions, and colored in the wood of the chair with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil. Same with the hat box, using a striped DP, colored the side of the lid and added some Stickles. Mounted the chair on a triple mat of three different CS colors and popped the box up on dimensionals. Embossed the burgundy CS with Cuttlebug paisley folder, inked the raised parts. Guess I had an attack of corner punches, as I used the rounder and that notched one on this card. Sentiment is from Verve, cut out with oval Nestabilies and mounted on dimensionals. Finally, added those teensy Cuttlebug flowers I seem to have gotten hooked on, put Stickles in their centers, and then the Dew Drops.

Stamps: Whiff of Joy Willow's Chair, Pink Cat Studio Kitty, Verve Artful Elegance
Paper: The Paper Studio CS, My Mind's Eye DP.
Ink: Stazon, Colorbox Queues, Prismacolor pencils.
Accessories: Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Stickles, Dew Drops, dimensionals, corner punches.
