A Whiff of Joy Challenge 22 - Green

This is my entry for A Whiff of Joy Challenge 22 which calls for the colour green to be used...































From the base up...
1. Stardream pearlescent "Rose Quartz" card.
2. Basic Grey Sultry/Vogue paper
3. Bazzil card. The stamp used is from a clear set of border stamps by Kelly Panacci (SandyLion)
4. Main image is "Willow with flower basket" by A Whiff of Joy. Coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils Sansodor, Gold Gel pen on the bracelet and Staedtler Triplus fineliner pens.
5 The flowers are from Joanna Sheen and the leaves are by Syntego. Ribbon and butterfly charm courtesy of eBay.
I haven't put a sentiment on the card as I don't usually put one on until I'm about to send it out.
Not really happy with this card apart from the colouring of Willow, but as I haven't got time to make another it'll have to do.
Thanks for looking.
Take care & keep smiling
