Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you are having a great week thus far!!!  It is so hard to believe how time flies.  It seems like the summer just begun and now it is over and school is now in session.  Fall is just around the corner...how can it be?

Anywho...Today it is a new challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges.  This week Jane has designed a sketch for you!!!




This is my take on the sketch with a few minor additions. LOL!  I added a bow at the top and the pearls on the side.


The image is Whiff of Joy Willow Kneeling Up. She is one of my fave Whiff of Joy images ever.  She is just darlin'. I paper pieced her outfit with a lot of different dp scraps. The background paper is Bo Bunny Welcome Home.

card recipe:
stamps: Whiff of Joy Willow Kneeling Up, (sentiment also Whiff of Joy but I forget what set it is from)
Paper: Bo Bunny Welcome Home, scraps, gold glitter paper, Kraft
Accessories: ZVA Creative roses, lace from a dear friend, twine, Circle Spellbinders, Spellbinders labels 21 (sentiment), Spellbinders Grand Caliber


For more inspiration for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:   JaneKathrin, MicheleDunjaDurvinaJulie and Karina
