Sketch Saturday with Whimsy Stamps

Good Saturday Morning,

Hope your weekend is off to a great start. I'm planning to hit some craft stores later, but before I leave for the day, I have a card to share that I made for the challenge over at Sketch Saturday. Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring the challenge this week and we're offering up two stamps from our new Whimsy Kids Collection to one lucky participant! Head over and check out the challenge and all the terrific design team creations!

The sketch this week was created by the super talented Jeanette, who we are also lucky enough to have on our Whimsy Design Team! Here's the sketch....

For my card I wanted to incorporate Valentine's Day into this sketch. So, I started by making the card using some BasicGrey Bittersweet papers and SU! cardstock in pinks and browns. Once I had the card put together, I chose to use my new Whimsy Walrus for the image and a sentiment from our Animal Love set. The corners have jumbo eyelets and then I added some white gel pen highlights and dots for some faux stitching. My final touch was to create some faux snow for this big guy to lay on and I did that with some crystal effects, chunky glitter and dazzling diamond dust glitter.

Thanks for taking a peek, have a wonderful weekend. And if you are up for a challenge, pop on over to Sketch Saturday and join in the fun!

Happy Stamping!! :)
