Whimsy Stamps Sept. showcase - Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of our September Rubber Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (Sept 14th), Whimsy Stamps released our September rubber designs and new dies! From then until September 20th, the Whimsy Stamps DT will be showcasing these fabulous new stamps and shapeology die with a daily mini blog hop.

Each mini blog hop will have a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you will have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 9.00am EST tomorrow morning. All winners will be announced here on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12noon on September 21st.

Here is what I created for today's showcase. I used the stamp Scarlett West from the Kenny K collection, along with the Lavish Flourishes stamp set by Raindrop Echo Designs, both available at Whimsy Stamps.
The ticket sentiments are digital stamps by Raindrop Echo, which are also available at Whimsy in the digital stamp collection.

I colored the image using my derwent coloursoft pencils and some copic markers for the skin. The paper is from Basic Grey, card stock is from Stampin Up.
All edges have been sponged, distressed and sewed with my janome mini. In the two corners I used the small stamp from "lavish flourishes" by raindrop echo".

Here is a close up of the image.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
