Whiff of Joy Willow

I have made the most of the lovely weather we have had here today and spent 3 hours in the garden cutting back and tidying for the winter, hope it stays for a few more days and then it should all be done and the tools put away for another year. Hope you have all had good weather too.
On with the card - l can not remember the last time l inked Willow up and is'nt she gorgeous. I had in mind Lilac and green for the Ribbon girl challenge and played about for hours and ended up with a simple layout. I laid flowers here there and everywhere then butterflies and ended up moving them off as l felt Willow looked beautiful with just the background l inked and stamped - hope you agree.
Stamp WOJ Willow, sentiment LOTV
Coloured with copics and a touch of glamour dust
Background distressed with bundled sage and stamped with Inkylicious Moonlight foliage in milled lavender.
Papers - Dovecraft Back to Baasics and swiss dot bazzill
Pearl ribbon slider, ribbon and pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.
Ribbon Girls 12 - Lilac & Green
Crafty Catz 104 - Happy Birthday
Thanks for stopping by x Susan x
