Whimsy October Digital Release - Day 3

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to Day 3 of our October Digital Stamp Release Showcase! On Monday 1st October, Whimsy Stamps released this month's new Digital designs. So from then until 4th October 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 October.

Here is my card for today!

This image reminds me of the old Christmas tale "Twas the Night Before Christmas", except in this version the cute little mice are up late listening to Santa's bedtime stories! ;) This image is called "Santa" by Lia Stampz, and is available now from Whimsy Stamps. I've used Basic Grey 'Wassail' papers (eking out the last of my stash!), and left the card fairly simple. I cut the image out with Labels Four, and instead of a border used the die as a stencil, sponging lightly with Distress Ink 'Antique Linen'. I use this method quite a bit as it gives a nice subtle border effect.
Hope you like it!
