Whiff of Joy - Guest DT Call, and ABC Challenge

Over on Whiff of Joy Katharina's blog she is looking for 1-3 Guest Designers for 2 months at a time for the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog. This first call is open until January 23rd. There are some great perks to receive if you get to be chosen which are detailed along with what is expected on Katharina's blog.  For this first Guest Design Team call there is a sketch to follow.

This is my take on it:

I used the Rose Swing and Willow Sitting Bride, and I am ashamed to admit that I have not used them before.  However, this will also make a lovely card for the daughter of a dear friend who is getting married. 
I stamped Willow first and made a mask of her, and stamped the Rose Swing around her.   I coloured with Prisma Pencils. I then cut out and mounted onto Bazzill cardstock. The DP I have used is all from the Basic Grey Porcelain. The circle, which is not very visible, was cut out with a Lattice Pendant Nestie, and I added an overlay of the green DP to prvide a muted background for the flowers.  I have added more than the three on the sketch, because I felt it needed it.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The heart border at the bottom is cut with a Martha Stewart valentine lace punch, and overlaid with lace and pearls from my stash.

Details of the flowers:

I am also entering this for the ABC Challenge, M is for Masking, and it fits the criteria for that challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by.
