Whimsy Stamps - October Showcase Day 5

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of our October Release Rubber and Die Showcase!

On Wednesday (12 October), Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs and new shapeology dies. From then until 19 October the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop.

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

Here is what I created for today's showcase and mini blog hop.

Photobucket

I used the sweet "Santa Paws" stamp by Crissy Armstrong. What a cutie!! I decided to make a clean and simple card to keep the focus on the image.

It's been stamped on hot press watercolor paper using stazon ink. Colored with ranger distress inks. I applied some frosted lace stickles to the hat.
The beautiful ribbon was sent to me by the lovely and amazing Ann of raindrop echo designs who is the artist behind the whimsy shapeology dies and sentiments!

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
