WoJ # 35 and Friday Sketchers # 57...Sweet Little Angel!

I made this card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge for this week's challenge, Paper Piecing and I used the great sketch over at Friday Sketchers for the card layout!
I used Willow with baby from the Whiff of Joy Women's Delight collection and this great K&Co. Berry Sweet paper that my stamping pal Jo sent me in a RAK it is sooo pretty and I used Bazzill Basics and Bazzill Bling cardstock!

I stamped Willow on Prism Simply Smooth White cardstock and coloured her in with my Copics and paper pieced the wee baby swaddled in this pretty pink flower pattern paper! I did the out of the box Nesties technique again as I didn't want to cut of any of willow's gown, as it is so beautiful! I used some scrap pieces of American Crafts ribbon from my stash. I cut the Nesties tag and stamped the WoJ sentiment. I left the die in place after embossing the tag and inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Scattered Straw!

Here is the inside...another one of the great WoJ sentiment from the new Women's Delight collection and some pretty prima flowers and MM brads! Since I was scrounging up the last bits of my ribbon here I didn't have enough to span the width of the card, so I used one bit on one side of the sentiment and another bit on the other of the sentiment and the Nestie rectangle hides that they don't actually meet in the middle! Now that is pretty good at using up the bits and pieces eh?! I am just a titch sad that this is the last of this yummy green plaid American Crafts ribbon!
Well, there you have it another card! Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek !
