Whimsy Challenge - Ruffles

Hi Everyone!

I have some exciting Whimsy News for you! Starting this month there's going to be a new challenge every month in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration Facebook Group!
Please hop over and join the group (if you haven't already) and play along with our February challenge - you could win a $15 Whimsy gift voucher!
The Whimsy Rubber DT are sharing our inspirational creations throughout the first week of the month, but you have the whole month to enter!
 
The theme for February is "Something New" and since we are so close to Valentine's Day I had to go with "New Love"!

This cute and fun stamp is from the latest Whimsy Stamps New Release, and is called "Ruffles" by Time 4 Tea Designs.
I have also used the new "All You Need Is Love" set from SC Designs Collection, for both the sentiments and I also made some embellishments with the heart and adorable little kiss stamps. I love this set and can see myself using it heaps!

I gave her a nice new paper-pieced dress with Crate Paper 'Paper Heart' papers. I also fussy-cut some hearts from my offcuts of the patterned paper and popped them up.

I was so excited when I found this Artsy.licious 'Ruby' crocheted lace in my stash, as it went perfectly with the colours. Don't you just love it when that happens? ;)

Hope you like my card... and I hope you'll join us in the new Whimsy Stamps Facebook Challenge!

Have a great week and a very Happy Valentine's Day!
