Whimsy August Digital Release - Day 4

Hi Everyone, and welcome to Day 4 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!

And a closer shot...

Well here we are my final card for the release showcase! For this card I went all 'artsy'! This lovely image is called "Artist" and is by Dana's Digi's. I just love her sweet face and beautiful eyes! She has a dreamy quality about her so I used a sentiment from "Framed Word Sentiments" by Raindrop Echo Designs (just without the border). Both  the image and sentiment are available from Whimsy Stamps. I followed the current Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 164, which has a 'tag' tucked behind the image. I decided that for this card a little painting was more appropriate ;) I chose colours that my Mum would like as she is the professional 'Artiste' in our family!
