Whiff of Joy Challenge 29

My second post for the day....almost unheard of!!! This is for Whiff of Joy Challenge 29 where there is a fabulous sketch to follow.

I have made a card very similar to this before and sent it to my Mum, well everyone that saw it liked it, so I have made this in the hope that I can sell it!!

I have used the very lovely Willow with Cookies stamp from WOJ and she is coloured with distress inks. The papers are from Laura Ashley and the embossed panels have been done with my d'vine swirl folder.

I have used my fiskars threading water punch for the scalloped edge along the bottom and I have sponged dusty concord distress ink around the edge of the DP.

The inside has been decorated using the same papers and I have added a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Both the recipe and the sentiment on the front have been done on my computer using the font lucinda handwriting.

I keep meaning to have a go at making these, but I have tasted cookies made with this recipe and they are yummy!!!

Card/Paper: White and lilac card, Laura Ashley - Contemporary
Stamp: WOJ - Willow with Cookies
Colouring: Distress inks - walnut stain, tattered rose, faded jeans, dusty concord, antique linen, fired brick and weathered wood.
Embellishments: Jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, d'vine swirl folder, fiskars threading water punch, sponge, water brush

Thanks for looking x
