WOJ #79 - Better Late than Never

Hi Friends~

First I will start with an update....I have gone back to my doctor and they have run some tests which so far have come back normal, which is a good thing....but my tummy is still out of whack!  I really wish that it would settle down already.  Got another round of antibiotics...so hopefully those help, otherwise I'm sure that will mean more doctor appts. Hopefully it's a virus that has almost run it's course because I am sure sick of having it!  Thank goodness I only have one class going on right now and so far it seems to be a fun and fairly easy class, so I can't complain.  The professor lets us out early (so far) which definitely helps when you are not feeling the greatest either! 

For those of you who would love to see pictures of the wedding that I was in this past weekend, please click -->here<-- my Mom has them posted on her blog! :)

Today I have my WOJ card to share with you!  Only a week a late....but better late than never, right?!  I actually almost had this card complete before I got sick...then got sick and never had enough strength to sit at my desk long enough to put the flowers on the card.  But now it is done and I am very pleased with it!
This week's challenge is to use YELLOW, BROWN, Plus ONE MORE COLOR!  My third color is GREEN I know hard to believe it's not pink huh?!  I've my Willow with Hot Chocolate for this card....she was looking all lonely in my stamps so I thought she deserved some love!  Papers are from the Basic Grey Origins paper pack.  And those gorgeous roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts!
Miss. Willow of course was colored with Copics and highlighted with my White Gel PenSmooch Illuminate was used on Willow cocoa cup for some sparkle along with the flowers on her pants.  Willow is popped up on a blossom nestie that has been stamped in versamark with my new SU vintage jumbo wheel and then embossed with white embossing powder...love this as a background.  The brown panel behind the yellow blossom is made with my Peony nestie.
And here is one more photo that shows the card from a fun angle!  Hope this card was worth the wait! :)
