WOJ #46

Hello Everyone!

Are any of you going out of town for the holiday weekend? Well, I'm going out of town Saturday and I'm looking forward to a little R&R. The kids start school the day after Labor Day and I am soooooooo glad!!

In the meantime, I'm trying to stay ahead with my challenge cards before I leave. This card is for Whiff Of Joy's challenge #46 , a sketch designed by WOJ's very own Bev! I made it a point to finish my card earlier because I already know that I won't have time over the weekend.

Willow With Lantern is colored in with Copic Markers and I used my cool gray Copic Markers (C1&C-3) to help give the illusion of depth to her gown. I embellished my card with Prima products and inserted filigree

brads in the snowflake and flower centers. For the time being, I didn't add a sentiment. Sometimes I am totally challenged when it comes to a sentiment!! Other embellishments are ribbon, half pearls and MS flower lace punch. The card stocks are Bazzill and Papertrey Ink. Design Paper is by Basic Grey and DCWV.

Have a super great day and safe holiday weekend! I'll be back Sunday with my Anyone For Anya? card.

OH my this is so gorgeous. I might be going to Pontiac on Saturday night to see Joan Jett at Arts Beats and Eats. We go every year. One year it was Weird Al! And it's a huge fundraiser for local charities. I hope the weather holds nicely thru the next weekend as my daughter is getting married the 12th-then I am off the hook for wearing shoes I hate!
