Sundays with Crissy Challenge #29--Things with Wings AND Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #38

Hi Everyone!
This weeks card double dips for both my Sunday's with Crissy and Whimsy Inspiration Challenge! I made it for my 'Crissy card'... but then realised it was too perfectly matched for this weeks Whimsy challenge not to use it!

So here we go! Firstly...

Welcome to another great Whimsy Inspiration Challenge! Our theme this week is "Make It Pop!"  (For example add some dimension to your card... or however you interpret it!)
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!

So join us for this weeks Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #38 - "Make It Pop"!
You could win 5 Free Digital Stamps of your choice, so click on the link above and get creating!

And now....

Welcome to another new challenge at "Sundays with Crissy"!! Our theme for May is... "Things with Wings!"
What a fabulous challenge this month - so many wonderful images to choose from! I was tempted by the beautiful butterflies, but in the end couldn't go past the adorably chubby cheeks and fluttery wings of "Cute Cupid" by Crissy Armstrong (of course!), available from the fabulous Whimsy Stamps.

So now it's your turn... Make your way back over to the Sundays with Crissy blog and play along too - I can't wait to see your "Things with Wings" creations! You can enter at Sarah's Post - Here!

And now for my card....

I decided Crissy's "Cute Cupid" should be among the clouds, so I used the awesome new Shape EZ Cloud Card Template also from Whimsy Stamps - love this template and it was so easy to use! I just distressed the edges to try to make it look a little more fluffy and 'cloud-like', and edged it with Stardust Stickles.
Of course I double mounted Cute Cupid and popped him on a cloud for his comfort!

Hope you like it!

And to show how it opens...

Hope you all have a fabulous and creative week!

Love & Hugs,
