Occasion Celebration

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend. The Easter Bunny was very generous with the chocolate at our house! A bit too generous I think! We may all be in a chocolate coma by the end of the week!

Today is the kick off of the new Whimsy Stamps Challenges blog! Being that it's the first challenge and we're celebrating the launch of this new site, our theme for this challenge is to have everyone make a Special Occasion or Celebration project! Pretty easy right!

Everyone is welcome to join in these challenges, however to be eligible for prizes, you must include a Whimsy Stamps image on your project. Check out the Whimsy Challenges site for more info about our challenges and the fun blog candy prize!

This is the card I made for the challenge. My sister is due to have a baby girl later this summer so what better occasion than "Welcome Baby!"

I used some Pink Pirouette and So Saffron cardstock along with Parisian Summer DSP, all from SU!. The image is Pajama Time Emma, available at Whimsy Stamps and on sale all this month! I colored her with Copics and then went over the pajamas with some Twinkling H2Os to add some shimmer. The accents are some paper flowers with SU! Button Latte buttons and a rhinestone brad, metal flower, and sentiment. I also added some lace ribbon and a heart shape metal piece to finish off this card.

Thanks for popping on over today! Hope you'll give this challenge a try! Be sure to stop by the Whimsy Challenges site and check out the fun celebration cards from the Whimsy Challenges DT!

Happy Stamping!! :)
