Whimsy August Digital Release - Day 3

Hi Everyone, and welcome to Day 3 of our August Digital Stamp Release Showcase! On Wednesday 1st August, Whimsy Stamps released this month's new Digital designs. So from then until 4th August the Whimsy Stamps Digital DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with Daily Mini Blog Hops, and I am part of today’s hop! Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way, and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw. To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00pm EST (or 5pm UK) tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog on 5th August.

Here is my card for today!

I went all girly for today's card - little girls and flowers and butterflies! I wanted all my cards to be really different over the 4 days, so I needed something a little shabby chic and feminine for the mix! This image is "Flower Girl" by Moon Cookie Gallery, from Whimsy Stamps, and is certainly 'girly'! I also used some Digital Papers by Michele R Designs, also available at Whimsy. You can see which ones I used below - they are so easy and convenient! I distressed and shaded everything for that shabby vintage look. Hope you like it!
