WOJ #82 - My Sketch!

Hi Friends~

Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts regarding my recent internet issues!  After almost 11 hours the other day, my internet service provider finally got my email figured out...and it was their fault...surprise surprise....not!  I want to thank my very dear friend, Susana and her awesome hubby for ALL their help...I couldn't have gotten this resolved with out you two...you are the bestest....THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Mwah!

Today I am super excited to tell you that we have a sketch challenge over at the WOJ Challenge Blog for you....and guess what....the sketch was made by me....so please be kind as this is my first sketch with WOJ, it surely doesn't compare to Bev's beauties, but I had fun making it!  I hope that you have fun playing along with my sketch!  I can't wait to see how everyone interprets it....I think that is going to be the best part for me!!!
I've decided to use Cool Oakley and Willow Dressing Up which are from the first City Collection, seeing how I am *patiently* but excitedly (hee hee) waiting for my City Collection II stamps to arrive I thought I would use these cuties from the first set! I've once again gotten inspiration from my Mom!  She paired these two stamps together in an anniversary card for me and my hubby, you can see her card -->here<--
Here is my sketch, I really hope you have fun playing along with our challenge!

The papers I've used are from the Basic Grey Cappella Collection.  Oh my word do I love these beautiful papers in here....I had to cringe when I cut into them!
The bottom panel has been created using a MS border punch and my ovals and scallop oval nesties with a SU sentiment.
The image has been popped up on the Renassiance Heart Pendant die cut.  Of course these cuties were colored with copics.  I've used my gold spica on Willow's left bracelet and sash of her dress.  My Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Cream was used to create the pearls on her bracelet on the right.
All flowers (but one) are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The first rose collection I am sharing with you is what I call the pink collection on this card....I used pink flowers on one side of the card and blue flowers on the other to incorporate the girl and boy! :)  For the pink collection I've used a NEW Champagne Pink Classic Sweet Rose, 15mm roses, and 4mm closed rosebuds.  These have all been sparkled up with star dust stickles.  Behind the flowers are some lace...of course I didn't have a cream color lace I wanted...and then I had an AH HA Moment and remembered I have Glimmer Mist!  So I took my Bronze Glimmer Mist and tinted the lace to look more vintage! 
Finally is the Blue flower collection!  I've used Cream Cherry Blossoms (which have been spritzed with the same Glimmer Mist as the lace), 10mm roses, Gypsophlia flower, and clear Crystal Heart steams.  All these flowers too have been sparklized with star dust stickles.

Now go and create a fun card with my sketch!  I can't wait to see what you all make....remember to use a WOJ stamp to be in the running for the chance to win the lovely stamp that is sponsored this week!  The WOJ Challenge blog is also having a DT call so if you would like to be on our amazing team make sure that you put "DT" behind your name in Mr. linky with your entry this week!
