WOJ, Friday Sketchers and Spoon full of Sugar

This is my favourite of the 2 cards I made last night.

I've made this card for a 9 year old little girl who thinks she's more like 19! So, I couldn't have a card that was too childish for her however, it is a child's card nonetheless.

The Whiff of Joy Challenge has a theme of making a boys or girls Christmas Card with no blue on it. I don't have any boy WOJ stamps...yet, so I've used Willow again. Now, if you've been following my blog you'll know that I always colour this stamp in blue (I don't know why) so how pleased was I with myself at making Willow Green and Red? Pleased as punch!

I used the incredible layout over at Friday Sketchers. Murmur - thank you so much for providing such an amazing layout. I loved working with this. All those layers and strips really made me think about the papers I chose and the embellishments that would work with the card.

Finally, A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge has a theme of 'A Child's Card' so as this is for a 9 year old, I think it qualifies.

I wanted it to look like Willow was walking through snow. I'm not sure if this really shows up in the photo, but the cream flowersoft I added has glamour dust sprinkled in it too so that it really sparkles.

And, carrying on this week, I have decorated the inside too - just to show that I did use some snowman and Christmas tree paper on the front of the cards.

Items used:
Papers: Anita's Christmas papers and a Papermania paper.
Stamps: Willow with lantern and Papermania sentiment inside the card
Dovecraft Ribbons, Happy Christmas Sentiment Brad and Xmas tree brads
Water colour pencils and Sakura Stardust pens
Cream Flowersoft
Glamour Dust
