Fun in the Sun with Reading Willow

I'm back to share another card with you!  Yep, I'm really trying to get these cards done during my day off :)

This card uses two of the stamps from the Whiff of Joy Fun in the Sun June stamp kit.  I think the Willow stamp is called Reading Willow, but I'm not sure about that.  The sand castle stamp is also from the spring kit.  I'm not sure it would actually support Willow sitting on it, though : / In either case, they're still great images!  I used what little paper I had left from my Pink Paislee 365 Degrees paper pad (I love these papers) along with an assortment of flowers from my stash.

Stamp: Whiff of Joy Fun in the Sun Juene Stamp Kit
Coloring Medium: Distress Reinkers
Paper: Pink Paislee 365 Degrees
Accessories: pearls, ribbon, flowers
ToolsCuttlebug, Nestabilities, Embossing Folder (Tile Texture), Making Memories Paper TrimmerATG adhesive gun

Oooh, this is beautiful! I love that paper line, too, and you've worked it wonderfully here. I adore the detail of the layering, and your coloring job is fabulous on those fun stamps. She might crush the castle, but for now she looks amazing! ;) Thanks for sharing this with us in the Tea Room.
