Willow and her chocolate ... again :) [WoJ Challenge #3]

This week's requirement for Whiff of Joy Challenge #3 is to follow Heather's sketch - this one:

It's a great layout but it gave me a bit of a headache :) My creativity is not at its brightest right now (or ever, to be perfectly honest - lol) and I noticed I am having difficulties with clever layouts - those that involve more than 2 DP rectangles and an embellishment :)

But as I am a living witness of WoJ Challenges being born I decided to never missed it and always try my best.

Here's my best for this challenge:

As usual, the papers are printed at home from free downloads available on the Internet. The ones I used are from Faith Sisters.

I cut out Willow after colouring with watercolour pencils and glitter markers (not very visible in the scanned image) and layered her with foam dots on a piece of embossed cardstock. Inked all the papers with Ancient Page - Chocolate [ to match with the Willow stamp :) ]
Used a peel-off stripe over the ribbon and rhinestones for corners and flowers' centres. A tiny punched heart to enhance the sentiment (clear stamp from Studio G mini set) - and that's about all.

The card stops at the cream/yellow border :) The rest is the cardstock I used when scanning.

Thank you for dropping by and taking a look.
