Willow with Cookies...

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. ~Author Unknown

I recently found the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog and this week they have a Sketch, which I love...sketches are my favorite challenge, I am okay on adding Bling and Stuff, but have issues with Layout.

I used Willow with Cookies, which I think is one of the sweetest images Ever!!! A friend sent me this image in my Christmas card and I will be snatching up the Real stamp as soon as I have some spare $$! :)

I also used Basic Grey paper and a chipboard flower in the corner that I cut using my CB, so this card also works for the Basic Grey Challenge this week!! WOO HOO, I love multi-tasking challenges!

Here is a close-up of all the Stickles I added. :) Sparkle much?? Just keep Stickling, Just keep Stickling :D (That was for you Edie!!!) See how the stitching is not quite a zig zig stitch??? That is what happens when your tension is wrong. :-S I noticed after about an inch of stitching and decided to just leave it!

And the inside.... (the sentiment is a new Elzybells stamp coming out tomorrow!!!)

Supplies:
Stamps: Willow and Cookies (Whiff of Joy,) Elzybells sentiment
Paper: Stella Ruby (Basic Grey,) Always Artichoke, Ruby Red (SU)
Ink: Pallette Noir, Marigold Morning, Copic Markers
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Glazed Brads, CB Flower Die, Michael's Flower Punch, Sewing Machine
