It's time for a new challenge at Whimsy Stamps...

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for a new Whimsy Stamps Inspirations challenge! Our theme this week is Use Punches or Die Cuts - easy hey?

I have made a pretty, pretty card using a gorgeous flutterby image called Lily Butterfly. I have coloured with Promarkers as usual and paid lots of attention to my shading of the pink area which I think has paid off, what do you think...?

Image - Lily Butterfly coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Pink Heart Flower by Magnolia
Flowers - Crafty Emma's Store & My Mum's Craft Shop
Ribbon - Pretty Little Ribbon Shop
Pearls - stash
Tools - Marianne Design Creatables butterfly die, Memory Box Fancy Blooms die, brown chalk inkpad

Don't forget you don't have to use a Whimsy item to enter the challenge (it would be great if you did though!)

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!
All we ask is that you add a link in your blog post to tell your friends you entered the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenge.
