A Spoonful of Sugar Yellow/WOJ Challenge

I made this card following the sketch on This sketch had so much on it but I ended up adding one more flower because I had made my card taller and it needed some balance. It also has lots of distressing on it for the challenge this week at Whiff of Joy.
I used my Prismacolored Markers on Kneeling Willow. I wanted to stick to a monotone card so I only used yellows on this card. The base of the card is Kraft paper from SU and the other papers are all from The Paper Company. I used all different kinds of flowers but all are from Prima. I used aged bronze brads from K&C company as the flower centers. I also used the circle and scalloped nestibilities to cut out the Willow image.

This is the extra flower I added for balance. The center brad at the top is from Imaginisce. I won this beauty is the blog candy I won from Suzy. It was perfect for this spot. This photo also shows the magic mesh which I used in two it is the vanilla beige color and below I used the deeper beige color.

I wanted to show this wonderful little sentiment stamp from Inkadinkado. It is from a set by Elizabeth Brownd and is just so detailed. I colored the flowers on the corners with a yellow gold spica pen to add just a touch of color to the stamp. The inside is covered with this same paper . Again I left it sentiment free until I know the card's use.
It is such a beautiful day here....sunny and it is supposed to reach 11C today. What a week...snowstorm Mon./Tues. and Spring back on Thurs. I only hope this melts a whack of snow. I have to finish the income tax forms today so I won`t see much time to play. I hope to be back later with the winner of the blog candy from yesterday. Hope you win.
