For today's card I used the super adorable stamp "Sympathy Bugs" from Whimsy's Sylvia Zet collection. Aren't these bugs sweet?


I decided to create a "hang in there" card with them, but I think these cuties would make such a cute "I miss you" card, or anniversary or love....

I used my pencils and baby oil for coloring.

Designer papers are from a 6x6 pack by My Minds Eye. The sentiment is a really old one by stampin up. I embellished with some lace, seam binding ribbon, and twine. The corners were cut out using Whimsy's brand new Corners Shapeology dies. To finish it off I did some machine sewing and added a little bit of glitter.

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

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog on 29 February.
