Let's Get Sketchy- DT for Whimsical Wednesdays

Wow, is it Wednesday already?.. this year has certainly started to speed by ...LOL
well ladies.. with it being Wednesday, I get to share a Whimsical Wednesdays project with you all.. You know, I have started creating cards and I am in absolute Aaaaaw.. I've had so much fun...
and when Stephanie from WW had asked me if I did card sketches , I told her I had never done one before, but I'd love to give it a go and so, here is my very first card sketch:

and here is my take on the sketch I created for us girls over at Whimsical Wednesdays:

I absolute love how this card came out.. I used K&Co papers and actually these papers were something that I had mail ordered and wasn't too happy with then once I got them, but they are awesome on this card..LOL  you just never know right?

for a few close ups:

I actually pop dotted everything except for the hearts in the pocket and I grabbed my cuttlebug and did some embossing on this card, which is a first..LOL

I used one of the sentiments from the "With Love" collection:
"Today, Tomorrow and always!"  you can check that out by clicking HERE

We also have sponsor for our challenge this week.. Its Stamp Fairy and she is sponsoring
