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 Buttons & Bows.

My card today is pretty clutter free, I have used my fave colour combination of blue and pink. I printed a single butterfly out from the Butterfly Border 1 set by Kathy aka StampArt Design and coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and cut it out and softly bent the wings around a pair of scissors to give them some dimension. I have used some gorgeous digi paper by Michele R Designs that has very pale pink butterflies all over it...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - 3, 2, 1 (3 buttons, 2 pieces of ribbon and 1 butterfly)
Hooked on Craft - All That Glitters
CYDA - Bingo (flowers, ribbon, gems)
Totally Papercrafts - Doodle On It (I drew the butterfly anntenna onto the dp)

Image - Butterfly Border 1 (currently only $1 in the Whimsy Stamps June sale!) coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Paper - from the Flight of the Butterflies set by Michele R Designs
Ribbon - Pretty Little Ribbon Shop
Flower - ebay
Buttons - Pretty Little Ribbon Shop
Gems - Melissa Frances
Other - brown chalk inkpad, Letraset fineliner for drawing the butterfly's anntena, Stardust Stickles

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 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.
