WOJ challenge #17 - Donalda's sketch

Oh have I struggled with this card. Not I hasten to add anything to do with Donalda's wonderful sketch for this week's WOJ which was an absolute dream to do - more to do with a serious bout of 'Wishy Washiness' that overcame me. I couldn't make my mind up what papers or image to use. Probably too much choice!! I still think I chose the wrong image for this card but there it is - I'm not going round again.
The image, coloured with pastels, looked a little bleak so a stamped a scrolled edge that looks a totally different blue in the photograph - but isn't.


Materials
Papers - K&Co Blue Awning : Image - WOJ - Willow with Cookies : Derwent pastels : Flowers - K&Co Blue Awning : Cuttlebug Vintage Corners : Basic Grey Boxer flourish stamp

Yes! Really vintage. I have the same stamp also and I've been a little bit confused with it. I haven't got a real touch of it. This card of yours helps me a lot in the future :)

Lovely card.
