Whiff of Joy/Papertake Weekly/Basic Grey

Today's card combines 3 challenges

I just adore this Kneeling Willow image, she's so thoughtful looking. I coloured her with copics and highlighed her cheeks with Inkessentials white pen, then I shaded the background using distress inks. I used my nesties to cut her out.. don't you just love the labels dies!!! My papers are a mix of BG Two Scoops and Porcelain and all of the brads are BG too (from various collections). I embossed the green paper with the birds & swirls folder and then sanded it down to make it more obvious... I hope it is!!

The rest of this week is going to be manic for me. My kits arrived today, so I need to make samples for  my classes this weekend. I have some of them started and was just waiting on stamps to finish off so I'm hoping it won't turn out to be a marathon crafting session for the next 3 days, lol.. my poor children!!
