Whiff of Joy Challenge #3

This will be my last post until next week. I'm leaving this afternoon to see my daughter for parent weekend at Norwich University in Vermont. Can't wait to see her!!!! This is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge, following a sketch by DT member Heather. For this card I used Willow with Lantern image. Colored her with Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. Added some Stickles for the holly berries and Twinkling H2O's on the lantern for a glow effect, which you can't see in the picture. Also added some over her hair and waist ribbons. Popped her up on dimensionals. All of the background papers are from Basic Grey Two Scoops pad. Ribbon is from Michael's dollar bin. Flowers cut out with my Cuttlebug, layered and secured with a brad. Snowflake rhinestones in the corners, and added some Dew Drops.

Stamps: Whiff of Joy Willow with Lantern.
Paper: Basic Grey DP, The Paper Studio CS.
Ink: Stazon.
Accessories: Ribbon, snowflakes, brads, dimensionals, Dew Drops.
