LOTV 49, Digital Whimsy and a DT call

I've had a few days off from posting things to my blog and the reason why will become clear at the end of this week. Let's just say that there are a few 3d and non-card items coming up (some of them do have a card too).

But today I have just a card for the Lili of the Valley challenge where there is a fantastic sketch to follow. I loved this sketch so I may well be back next week using it again (with a LOTV image).

I think this card would be perfect for a little girl's birthday, so I'm going to stash it away for when one of my daughters spring the surprise of a "I need a card tomorrow for...."

Items Used:

Image and Sentiment from Whimsy Stamps

Papermania Papers

Prima flowers

Hobbycraft raffia ribbon

Hobbycraft dragonfly punch


Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Black Soot, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint

Ribbon from my stash.

Oh, before I sign off..... EXCITING NEWS!!!

Whimsy will be introducing a digital line of images in a few weeks. So for those of you that prefer digital, you can read all about it HERE.

Also, one of the Whimsy illustrators, Crissy Armstrong, is starting up a new digital challenge and she is holding a DT call at the moment. You can find out more about the Sundays with Crissy HERE.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
