Smiles and Sunshine...

Happy Wednesday! 

Time for me to share a little Whimsy Inspiration here on my blog. I used a new rubber stamp from Whimsy's Elisabeth Bell August release for today's card, along with an older sentiment and dies.

Image has been stamped onto copic blending card using memento ink and then colored with copic markers and fussy cut. Watercolors were used behind the sentiment, but it's hard to see in the photo. It's been a while since sewed on my card, but this card was perfect for it so I sewed the edges. 

Product list:
MME designer papers, recollections 110lb -white, SU - colored card stock
vines die set, butterfly border die - I only used one butterfly from diecut (both by Whimsy Stamps)
ribbon, twine

Today I am playing along in the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday -  Something Sweet 
Bunny Zoe's Crafts -  Summer Colours
Crafting from the Heart -Always Anything Goes
Inkspirational - Use markers or pencils
Just Us Girls - Word Inspiration - Ribbon

Thanks for visiting, 
hope you have happy day filled with smiles and sunshine :-)
