Willow Dressing Up

Here is a card that I made using the beautiful Willow Dressing Up stamp from the new City Girl collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell available at Whiff of Joy Stamps..

The patterned papers that I used are from Memory Box's gorgeous Gossamer collection. Katharina kindly sent me those pretty butterfly charms and I just had to use one on this card! I also sprayed some of my homemade Perfect Pearl glimmer spritz on the Willow image piece. Ok, it wasn't planned. I had an accident using my Liquid Pearls on Willow's bracelets. To cover the mess, I decided to use the spritz over my image. Lesson learned: Always squeeze out the first bits of your Liquid Pearls on a piece of scratch paper before you put it on your target image...

I was instantly in love with those little roses from Prima the minute I saw them at my local Michaels! They come in three colors per package and I think these beautiful pink ones are from the "Spring Mix" collection. The color just matched my card perfectly!

That's all for today. Hope you have a beautiful Saturday!
