Skunk with Rose for Whimsy Challenge

This is my second post for today, scroll down if you'd like to see the other cute card I posted earlier.

It's the 3rd Wednesday of the month, and that means it's time for a new Whimsy Stamps challenge.
This month, the challenge theme is "use a die cut".

I inked up the cute "Skunk with Rose", just released last week from Whimsy Stamps, illustrated by Crissy Armstrong.
Stamped using versafine onyx ink, and colored using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I fussy cut the skunk to make him fit my card design.
The papers are by DCWV and Bo Bunny.


The fun sentiment is from last month's release "Happy Birthday". For my die cuts I used the stitched border dies from Whimsy and a circle nestabilities shape. I embellished with a punched out butterfly and sticky pearls and a little glitter on the rose.

Here is a closeup at the cute image. Not sure if you can tell, but the head was stamped twice and then popped up using 3D tape.


I would also like to play along in these challenges:
