Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #19

Hi Everyone!!
It's time for a new Whimsy Inspiration Challenge!
This weeks theme is "Add a Charm!"  And you'll have extra time to make your 'charming' creations, because we are taking a little break over Christmas! So this challenge will be open until the 4th January, when we'll all be back feeling inspired and refreshed!

You don't have to use a Whimsy image, but it would be great if you did! And it doesn't have to be a card - we welcome all paper projects. Don't forget to check out the challenge details - and your chance to be a Guest Designer with us - over at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog!

Would you know I didn't have a single metal charm? And we don't have Scrapbook stores where I live. But it's amazing what you can scrounge out of an old jewelry box when needed (and in a panic!) I have to admit that I actually chose the image and quote around the star charm LOL!

The image is the sweet new "Leah Catch a Star" from Lia's Stampz, with a sentiment from the beautiful Raindrop Echo Designs sentiment set "Amongst the Stars". Both these are available from the fabulous Whimsy Stamps Store of course!

I followed the Sketch Saturday Week #185, and used Basic Grey Jovial papers.

Hope you like my card!

And another angle which shows the charm a bit clearer...

So join us for this weeks Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #19 "Add a Charm"!

Hi Shannah, This is just gorgeous! I love how 3D you have made this cutie by your shading on the sides. I also love how she is reaching out of her circle (out of the box lol) The papers on their side is fabulous! I came over from The Outlawz and am now a follower and I am so glad I did! Spirited Love, Samara
