Whiff of Joy - A Recipie for you

I do love a yummy recipie, and that is exactly what we have for you this week over at Whiff of Joy Challenge , it is 3 papers, 6 brads and 2 flowers, now 6 brads is quite a lot for one card so it will get your creative ideas flowing on where to place them all. I used the lovely Willow from the new fall collection, she is my fave at the moment, but I am sure that will change as soon as my new Henry Mouse stamps arrive lol !
I have coloured Willow with my copics and have added some flowersoft to the leaves she is throwing, I thought it looked quite pretty for a change.

The papers i have used are all DCWV, 2 from the spring glitter stack and the darker blue one is from the Latte collection. The punched leaves are with a woodware punch and the lovely large flowers are from my stash, I think they came from ebay. The little flower brads are from my stash, I hope you can see them all ? a couple are hiding on the punched leaves. I have distressed all of the edges with antique linen distress inks. lastly the sentiment which is..............oh, I have no idea - oops !

A busy day ahead for me, trying to find my lovely hubby a birthday present that won't break the bank - never easy.
Be sure to check out the other DT's blogs to see their stunning work,
