Vintage Willow


Welcome to Challenge #40
It is that time again, are you ready for another Whiff of Joy Challenge???

I would like to remind you of the Whiff of Joy Anniversary Blog Hop this coming Saturday!!! There will be lots of prizes it starts at the Whiff of Joy Blog so go to Katharina's Blog and get all the info of the times, you sure won't want to miss this big party!!!

On to the Challenge we have a brilliant sketch by our very own Donalda this week, and we are looking for a Guest designer for August amongst the entries.



I am not really pleased with this card something about it is not quite right, never mind have just got to get on with it. The lovely Willow is coloured with Distress Inks, I have also distressed the papers with Tim Holtz distressing tool then sponged the edges with Frayed Burlap Inks, I rubbed over the lace doiley with a used teabag to give it a old lace look.



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
