Whiff of Joy - Rach's sketch

I've only been making this card for Whiff of Joy for about a week. I'll just about scrape in in time with it. I've gone down with some dreaded bug - sore throat, barking cough, streaming nose, head swimming, aching all over - you name it I've got it - wouldn't mind but I'm never ill. Could be the heating system here has broken down and I haven't been warm for 5days. I shall be glad to move into my own place. Right - enought of the self pity on to the card.
I'd forgotten just how large this Willow is which threw me off balance trying to fit it into this sketch which I absolutely love and intend to do it again very soon.
Willow is coloured with Copics and the edges stamped with the Stempelglede grunge stamps. The leaves are cut with the Sizzix branch and leaves punch, and the snowflake with the cuttlebug die. Flower, ribbon and pearls sprays are from stash.

Another exquisite card. That flower is gorgeous. Love the colour you have used for Willow. Am keeping photo of this handy as I have to do a very special card for another ace cardmaker and it might help. Doubt it though as mine will not be half as good. Know you wont mind if I try to copy
