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 Punches and Edgers.

I have used one of the gorgeous new digi images available at Whimsy Stamps this month. This image used to be available only in rubber but now you can purchase a digi version. This cutie is called Water Lily. I have teamed her with lots of punched butterflies, some of my fave ribbon and a couple of buttons. I love the sentiment, think it finishes my card off perfectly. Making this card was real therapy for me, bit of a full-on week at work and making this gave me the escapist time I needed.

Image - Water Lily coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Sentiment - from the Flowers in Bloom sentiment set
Papers - Garden Party by Dovecraft
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Buttons - Dovecraft
Pearls - ebay
Tools - Martha Stewart butterfly punch, c'Art-us Lily Border Punch, 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 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.
