We are being fancy at Whimsy Stamps...

Morning crafters. It's time for a brand new challenge at Whimsy Stamps and it's a really lovely one - Fancy Edges. Ooohhh I can hear you thinking!

I've chosen to make a card with one of the new January release images, designed by a new designer to Whimsy, Fairydust Images and is called Faithful Companion. I absolutely love this image and thought she'd look beautiful in lilac. My fancy edges are scallops on my card blank and my Nestie scalloped circle...

 Close-up of the gorgeous whimsical image...

Image - Faithful Companion by Fairydust Images coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Paper - Promises from Lili of the Valley
Pearls & flowers - stash
Other - Circle & scallop circle Nestabilities dies, Marianne Design Creatables butterfly die

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 3 random winners (yep I did say 3!) 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.
