Willow drinking hot chocolate ~ autumn

As soon as I saw this image of Whiff of Joy's Willow I knew I had to have it! She is so adorable and she always makes me think of my eldest, this one especially as she also loves her hot chocolate always with cream and marshmallows! With the recent cold wet weather we have been having I was so ready to do an autumnal card! A lucky coincidence that Stamp Something challenge has a fall theme and Papertake Weekly also has an autumn theme! I am so thrilled to have found time to enter some more challenges at last!
I used a very fine wire to make this spiral to decorate the flower and added some tiny beads.
The inside, a fab Studio G stamp again to decorate, simple but effective!
Supplies: Cardstock ~ SU chocolate chip
DP ~ Basic Grey ' Perhaps'
Stamps ~ Whiff of Joy 'Willow with hot chocolate', Studio G 'sentiment and mug', Basic Grey 'Wintertime' , corner stamps unknown make.
Embellishments ~ Prima flowers, Kaiser flower (small cream), other items of unknown origin.
