WOJ #73 - Recipe Challenge

Yes it's already Wednesday....WOW how this week is flying by....I'm sure it didn't help that I had an exam in my tax class yesterday....those exam days always seem to creep up and fly by....hope I did ok on this one....the last one didn't go very well.  Eeekkk!

But....on to more cheery matters!  WOW there were lots of great entries for Bev's Sketch challenge last week!  Thanks to all of those who played along with us!  Today over at the WOJ Challenge Blog we have a recipe challenge for you...a little bit of this and a dash of that....just kidding...what you need to use is 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 pattern papers....and of course a WOJ stamp!   
I've decided this week I was going to make a bridal shower card....for a special person's shower that I have coming up in a week and a half so I thought I would get it done a head of time (I know...for me that NEVER happens...I'm usually two steps behind instead of ahead!)  The sketch I've used is from Sketch Saturday and as you can see it's another easel card....Gosh I just LOVE these!

 Papers are from MM - the Sabrina Collection...I've had them laying around for a while now...I love how they are pink and black!  The wedding color is black then accented with I carried that through to my card.
I masked Willow with the rose swing and then colored with a few Copics, added Twinkling H2O (Heavenly White) to her veil.  I used Smooch Illuminate to the creases/shadows of her dress and then free-handed the decoration to the bottom of her dress with my Sakura clear pen.  I just love how the bright pink flower soft mixed with the shamrock and christmas green flower soft add such a fun detail!
The sentiment is from the WOJ Wedding Wishes and then I used my MS deep edge punch to get an extra large trellis.  Added my two heart buttons (which I almost forgot...ooopppss) and the shade of pink didn't match so I just grabbed my handy Copic RV25 to make them match!  Gotta LOVE Copics!
 Here is the side view so you can see the dimension. I hope you have enjoyed your stay here...make sure to head over to the WOJ Challenge blog so you can see what the other girls have cooked up!

I am also entering this card into the Copic Creations Year Blogaversary Challenge!  One of my favorite tutorials of theirs has been hair color!  I love learning new coloring techniques...thanks ladies for all the inspirations and tips!  Wishing you many more wonderful years at your challenge blog!

And I would like to wish my Gram a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Sending lots of hugs and kisses to you on this special day! XOXO  I do have my Gram's card done....but she's one of my avid readers so I can't share it with you until after this weekend when I get to hand deliver it to her!  Love you Gram!!!!
