WOJ #94 - My Sketch

Happy Wednesday Friends....as you are reading this I will be getting geared up for my advertising presentation that is today!  Oh how I dislike presentations!!  But after it's done that means only 2 more finals exams to go!  YIPPY!!!  I hear Friday...it must be almost here!  LOL!

It's another Whiff of Joy Challenge day today!  Yay!  Our challenge this week is to use my sketch!  I had so much fun designing this sketch and hope you all enjoy it!  However, I also have some sad news to share.  This is going to be my last challenge with the WOJ Challenge DT.  I have decided to step down from the DT as I will be starting a new chapter in my life with my internship.  I definitely have enjoyed my time being on this DT with such fabulous and talented ladies....you all are amazing!  I hope to still have time to be able to play along with the challenges now and again!  :)

Now onto my card:
I have used the Winter Love Birds stamp for my card today!  It's hard to believe this is the first time that I inked this poor stamp up!  These two are so adorable!!!  Papers are from the Bo Bunny Midnight Frost collection...oh my goodness is this pad absolutely stunning..it was hard for me to layer the papers because I didn't want to cover up any of the beauty on any of the pages! lol!  I've used some felt snowflake ribbon for my accent and then punched a blue snowflake strip with my MS punch that I got from my fabulous friend :0)
 And here is my sketch!  I hope you all like it and play along with us for this challenge! :)
These cute birdies were colored with Copics and then I airbrushed the sky around them.  The branch was decked out with liquid applique that I sprinkled with glamour dust before I heat set it....it gave my snow such a beautiful sparkle.  Then I applied little dots of glue around my image and used my Polar White Flower Soft (which is currently 15% off over at SCACD!) to make it look like the birdies are snuggling together in the snow!  Image has been cut out with my SB Oval Nesties and the blue layer was sparklized with Star Dust Stickles and then that layer was popped up onto my Marianne Die.
Flower are from the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts and consist of a curly wild rose, 15mm roses that were layered on padded silver snowflakes and then white stamens were added for an accent.
From this view I am hoping to share all the lovely dimension of this card.  Thank you again to the WOJ DT for being such a wonderful group of ladies...I am going to miss you all!

love the snow & your snuggling birds - the colours are stunning too. I'm not suprised you need to reassess & you have a lot on your plate. Thank you for all your encouragement when I was a GDT member alongside you.

Great sketch and your card is so gorgeous. I love the snow and the airbrushed background. Good luck with your finals. I'm wishing Friday would just show up already, too, but simply because I don't feel like working. LOL.
