Whiff of Joy Challenge #61

This is my first time to use the "Freezing Willow" stamp. She is so appropriate right now.  It's bitterly cold here and has been below 20F for the last two weeks with wind chills as low as -35F. These temperatures are really rare for us.  We had our first BLIZZARD in 20 years during Christmas week.
I'm so ready for spring!!!!

I loved doing this color challenge of aqua and red.  The bench Willow is sitting on is also a WOJ stamp. I cut out the bench and Willow and attached them with pop dots.  I tried to make my first flower and think I need a  little (LOT) of practice.......  The flower center is from Prima. The scrolls are from a Sizzix die and the branches are from an MS punch.  The paper is from Basic Grey paper pack called Bittersweet.

Here is a picture of the copics I  used minus the bench.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
Please leave me a comment so I can hop over and visit your blog.
"Hugs" Granny

Oh!!Very pretty!! Love that background paper..


A stunning card Carol - love the colouring, and your flower is beautifully made (don't be so hard on yourself - there's no need)! Sounds like you are still having extreme weather - we still have snow, but there are signs of a thaw here in West Yorkshire today - hope it continues! Keep warm - Love, Sylvia xxx
