Whimsy Challenge #100 Anything Goes

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog...

I have a card to share that I am entering in the Whimsy Challenge #100 - Anything Goes. I am also entering it in the Double D Challenge - Leaves (here is the link) and finally Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. Whew! That is a lot of challenges for one little card.  :)

I have quite a few Whimsy stamps but most of them are older ones. However, I love them just as much now as when I bought them several years ago.

For my card I used a harvest gold cardstock cut to A2 size and I covered the front with some pattern paper from my stash. The focal image is called Fall Wreath from Whimsy. I love it.

I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black on watercolour paper and coloured it up with Zig Clean Color markers and then matted it on some gold cardstock.

Across the bottom of the card I have attached a strip of ecru lace and a length of ribbon.

The sentiment is by Whimsy from the stamp set Friendship Tickets. I have tucked in a couple of leafy flourishes cut from an olive/mossy green cardstock using a Spellbinders die.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I look forward to reading your sweet comments. If by chance you should decide to follow my blog please do let me know and I will return the favour.

  4. Oh, my gosh, I just spotted this at Double D and had to come take a closer look. It really grabbed me -- the image, the colors. I'm all about using the older stamps along with the new, and this one is definitely a goody! I'm so glad you shared it with us at the DD!
