This month, Whimsy has something extra for you! Kit & Clowder is an online coloring community run by Alyce Keegan. The Kit & Clowder DT are hosting a special joint release party event today, which includes a special blog hop showcasing Whimsy’s March release. So today's Whimsy DT are also sharing their creations in this second hop! There is a $25 gift voucher up for grabs as a prize for the Kit and Clowder release party, and details of how to enter can be found over at Kit & Clowder.

For today’s card I've used one of Cathy Delanssay's new stamps called "In Winter". I'm loving this sweet whimsical range of images!
I've also used the new "Spring Notables 8" and "Notables 8 Die" by Raindrop Echo Designs, and an older Whimsy Shapeology Die, "Tall Timber Die". (The "Tall Timber Die" is now a Retiring Product so grab it quick while its still available - and at a clearance price!)


The rich red background paper is from Kaisercraft "Key to My Heart" 6x6 paper pad, and I coloured the image with Copics, aiming for  'Autumnal' colours. I sponged around the edge with Distress Ink 'Antique Linen', and then framed with a Nestabilities Fleur de Lis Rectangle. 


I added the sentiment and trees (with a touch of stickles), and then finished with Fun Flock for her hood and a few pearls.

Hope you like it!
See you again on Friday for another new release card!

Here's what I used for my card:
Whimsy Stamps Products: "In Winter" by Cathy Delanssay, "Spring Notables 8" by Raindrop Echo Designs, "Notables 8" and "Tall Timber" Whimsy Shapeology Dies.
