Whiff of Joy challenge and DT - Gio's sketch

Good morning! I hope you're all well. Today is, of course, time for a new challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge and this week we have a stunning sketch by the lovely and talented Gio. Loved your sketch Gio, thank you so much!!! I rotated the sketch to fit my image as I wanted to use this gorgeous Willow writing recipes stamp again, gorgeous isn't it!? The papers are K&Co and I have, of course, distressed the edges and inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.
I have coloured Willow with copics and stamped three different swirls from the Whiff of Joy Christmas swirls set using antique linen distress ink. I used my MS doiley lace punch for the edges of the paisley paper. The roses are from Wild Orchid crafts and the twigs have been punched with MS branch punch from grey cardstock.The sentiment has been cut from a larger sentiment tag from a Forever Friends set, the edges inked with Walnut Stain distress ink and mounted onto grey cardstock. Poor Willow, she hasn't been writing recipes any time I've used her yet LOL, she is always thinking of someone or reading LOL but I guess that shows how versatile this image can be! I finished with a gold organza ribbon bow - seem to have a thing for oversized bows at the minute LOL!! I was going to trim the ends but then quite liked how they trailed onto the table when I stood the card up so I've left the alone!!

Hope you like it and can find time to join us this week and pop and have a look at the rest of the DT's stunning work! x
