Whimsy Inspiration Card

Hi Everyone!!

Just popped in today to share a Whimsy Inspiration card with you!

This is the first time I've used any of the fun and quirky "Lia Stampz" images available from Whimsy Stamps!  I chose "Tyalisha" - cause I felt sorry for the poor little kitty who needs a bath (and I don't want to know why!).
I have to say this image is very different to my usual style, but it was really fun to challenge myself and try something new! And to keep in line with trying something different, I paper-pieced Tyalisha's cute little dress. I used some digital papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs and this weeks Deconstructed Sketch #19.
I actually had trouble deciding which papers to use, so I've made 2 cards in very different colours! But you'll have to wait for another day to see the other one!! (well that was mean, wasn't it?)
Today's card is using Sweet Shoppe's "Kibou for Japan" collection.

Don't forget there is a new Whimsy Inspiration Challenge  starting today! Go check it out and you could win 5 Free Digital Stamps of your choice!
