Sweet little Sandy

Happy Friday and thanks so much for stopping by!

Here is a card I made using a new
digi just released on June first by Crissy Armstrong, "Sandy", available at Whimsy Stamps.

I decided to color the image with copic markers.


I went with a clean and simple card because after coloring the image I realized that I didn't have any matching designer papers to go with my coloring. I did want to sew around the edges but my sewing machine started acting up again. I have to dig out the manual to see if I can fix it somehow.

The large seashell is from a retired set by Stampin Up so I can enter my card to this week's free for all challenge on splitcoast stampers, and the sentiment is a freebie from Meljen's Designs. I embellished with some striped ribbon, and then punched out a couple of butterflies using a martha stewart punch, and added sticky pearls to them.

I'd love to enter this card to the following challenges:
Before I leave I have some super exciting Whimsy News to share with you.

Whimsy Stamps is starting a new adventure and we want you to take the journey with us! On June 15, 2011, the first issue of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine will be debuting alongside our June rubber stamps and dies. We are excited to bring to you never-before-seen creations by the design team and by some fantastic Whimsy customers. In a continuous effort to provide you with creative inspiration, this issue will be free and available to everyone. Stay tuned - you won't want to miss it!

Can't wait to be able to show you the card I create for the magazine!!
