Whimsy Inspires Challenge *** Fancy Edges***

Good morning  and thanks so much for stopping by!

I made today's card for the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations challenge

This month the challenge theme is

  "Fancy Edges"

and I thought the new lace doily corner doily die 2 would be perfect to use for the challenge.

I used a brand new stamp from the January release, it's called " Floraline" illustrated by Elisabeth Bell.

I colored her using my Faber Castell Pencils, and as always blended with baby oil. 
I've embellished with a button and some twine, added a punched butterfly (Martha Stewart punch), and then a flourish diecut  using whimsy's "vines" die set. 
The sentiment "For You" is from the Whimsy Stamp set "Mini party letter seals". 

The papers are from a 6x6 pack by My Minds Eye, which I purchased at Hobby Lobby. Card stock is from SU and the white is Neenah.

There are about 2 weeks left to enter the Whimsy Challenge and there are 3 fabulous prizes up for grabs this  month! And you don't have to use a Whimsy Stamp, but if you do, then you might be chosen as a lucky guest designer for a future challenge. The guest designer will be able to choose a digi stamp of their choice from the store to create their guest card too!

I am combining this card with a few other challenges too:
