Willow with Cookies...yum!

We've had a really dull and dreary day here...so I've spent a bit of time crafting this afternoon...and managed to combine a few challenges on this card: the Sketch & Stash sketch; the Our Creative Corner Challenge to use 'Purple' on our cards; the One Stop Craft Challenge of 'Swirls & Pearls'; and the Whiff of Joy 'Floral' challenge. I used my new 'Willow with Cookies' stamped image (by Whiff of Joy), watercolouring her to match the My Mind's Eye paper ('29th Street Market'). I stamped some swirls (stamp by Whiff of Joy) in the corners, added a few adhesive pearls and some flowers (from Poppicrafts and Hobbycraft.
