Willow

I created this card for the For Your Inspiration challenge (fyi24). The inspiration photo is a lush garden scene – all greens with a pond and willow tree. I would love to spend the day there!

I really loved the willow tree (many childhood memories). So I started with that. I did decide not to make my whole card green (though it was very tempting). I needed a sympathetic thinking of you card, so I wanted more muted tones. I trimmed the card down to make it a touch narrower (4″ instead of 4 1/4″).

The ribbon is PTI silk ribbon that I colored with a Copic. That was SO quick easy and really turned out wonderfully. I can see me doing that again.

Thanks for taking a peek!
