Purrrfect Sketch

Happy Monday All!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. The weather was great here so we spent most of our time outside doing yard work and playing with the kids. And now here we are to the start of another week! The weekends are always too short, huh!

Today means a new Whimsy Stamps Challenge though! We are moving the challenges to every Monday and opening them to anyone who would like to join in. You do NOT need to use a Whimsy Stamps image on your creations, but or course if you have one, we'd love to see you use it!

The challenge today is to use this sketch which was designed by my friend Emily Weems. It's a great sketch that will accommodate many different images. I hope you'll join in the challenge this week and get in on your chance to win some BasicGrey goodies. Head on over to Whimsy Challenges for more info!

The card I made uses new Whimsy Lion and he's been colored with Copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen. I also cut him out and popped him up on foam tape.

The papers are various prints from a scrap pack along with SU! Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Baja Breeze. I kept this card fairly simple and only added a sentiment, some felt ribbon, brads, and paper piercing. I think this will work for a good masculine card.

Thanks for stopping on over today. I hope to have a chance to visit you all later too. Have a great afternoon. Happy Stamping! :)
