3 Challenges

Hi All!

Another week half over! It's been pretty nice weather-wise in New Hampshire these last few days, it almost feels like Spring is here, ALMOST. I had a play date with a friend today, the kids played great and us moms got to chat. Perfect way to spend the day!

I have a card to share that I made for 3 challenges...
A Spoon Full of Sugar was to use gems, Whiff of Joy was to use the color green, and then a great sketch over at Truly Scrumptious. You also have to use something shiny on your card for an additional part of the Truly Scrumptious challenge, which for my card would be the gems.

I got this cute image from the swap I hosted earlier this month, so all I had to do was color her. I used Copics of course and some white gel pen highlights. The papers are all old SU! prints and some Wild Wasabi and Almost Amethyst cardstock. I added adhesive gems, rhinestone brads, and a flower gem to fit the shiny and gem challenges. Then added some ribbon and a flower die cut to finish off this card.

Thanks for popping over! Be sure to check out the Whimsy Stamps website tomorrow! We'll be showing some sneak peeks at our next Whimsy Animals release as well as opening up ordering of the BasicGrey products we'll be carrying!

Happy Stamping! :)

Lovely card. I love the green and purple combo. Purple is my fav color after all.
I also wanted to say thanks for creating Whimsy stamps. I just recently discovered them. I have your adorable little frog sitting on the lily pad. I have been able to creat one card with it so far and used it for a CPS challenge. I just love them and plan on getting more of those adorable images. So many to choose from.
