Whiff of Joy challenge - a colour combo

Oh dear!  I messed this one up – I got so confused with having to schedule two posts on one day (very easy for me to get confused) I ended up not scheduling this post properly and it’s been sat in cyberspace happily waiting to appear.  I am so dense sometimes but today I do have an excuse.  I had a filling a couple of weeks ago and have developed an allergy to the filling material which has resulted in a very painful, swollen face.  Okay so I look like a flipping chipmunk that has lost a boxing match.  Yesterday wasn’t so bad but when I woke up this morning my one eye was swollen shut.  Excuses, excuses lol.
Our challenge this week is to use the colours orange, brown and cream.  Now at the minute I am rather busy with work behind the scenes and my brain would not engage!!  I just could not think how I could use these colours for a Christmas card so decided to use my favourite stamp from the Autumn collection.woj-willow-leaves-1

The flowers are a mix from Crafty Feeling and Wild Orchid Crafts (roses)woj-willow-leaves-2


Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Fall Willow catching leaves, sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine set
Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Tools: EK Success scallop border punch, circle nestabilities
Embellies: Flowers from Crafty Feeling, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts

Thanks for stopping by,
