It's challenge time at Whimsy...

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for a new Whimsy Stamps Inspirations challenge! Our theme this week is Flower Power, nice and easy ehh?

I have used a beautiful image and sentiment from a digital set by Raindrop Echo Designs called In My Garden and is available to purchase here. I love the sentiment. I have used some new gorgeous Basic Grey papers called Little Black Dress as I was trying for an elegant'grown up' card...

Here's a sideways view so you can see the dimension on the card...

Don't forget you don't have to use a Whimsy image to enter the challenge (it would be great if you did though!) The prize this week is...

Don't forget also...As well as a random winner being chosen each challenge one lucky player who has used a Whimsy Stamps image (rubber or digital) will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge. If you have used a Whimsy Image and would like to be a future guest please add GDT to your name when entering. The Guest Designer will be able to choose a digi stamp of their choice from the store to create their guest card too!

Remember anyone can enter our challenge and we don't mind you combining with other challenges either!
