WOJ Challenge #55



This weeks WOJ Challenge is to make a card using the colors orange, brown and ivory. I have to say that I like warm colors but sometimes trying to combine them is a bit tricky. I wasn't happy with my original color combo and decided to paper piece Shy Willow's dress instead.


Willow's dress is paper pieced with various sheets of design paper from Papertrey Ink's Autumn Abundance collection. Once again, I omitted a sentiment and will add something later. Willow is colored in with Copic Markers and I also gave a bit of depth to her paper pieced dress by shading in certain area. I embellished my card with Prima's Say it In Crystals and felt flowers.


The past few days have come and gone in a blur. It seems as if yesterday was Friday!!! Well needless to say, I'm behind on my blogging duties again and Smiley from millan.net I definitely will be making the rounds and catching up. I can't wait to see your beautiful cards! Any New Moon Smiley from millan.net fans out there? The clock is ticking and Friday will be here before we know it. At any rate, my gang and myself will be in line to see the much anticipated New Moon. Smiley from millan.net

Have a beautiful day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

Wow, Risa! This is beautiful!! I love her paper pieced dress, too. I am definitely a Twilight fan, so I am sure I will be a New Moon fan as well. Now to talk hubby into taking me to the movies this weekend!! *sigh* we haven't gone to a movie in a long time. We usually wait until it is out on DVD, cheaper and more comfortable to watch it from home. :) Wish me luck. lol
