New Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog - You Are My Sunshine

Hi there! Today is the day! It's our first challenge at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog! Yay! We have a super fun theme for's one of my favorites too...Ribbons and Bows! Here's my sweet card for this week's challenge...

I am showcasing this new digi image called Forget Me Not by Crissy Armstrong...isn't she the sweetest?! She's colored with Copics and her skirt and headband are paper-pieced. I cut her out with the Spellbinders Labels Eight dies. I added a little extra grass all around her with my Copics and stamped a sky background and highlighted it with some soft Copic colors! My sentiment is from the Emma Swinging Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs which you can find at Whimsy Stamps! It sorta reminds me of a sun peeking out from the clouds...and what a beautiful day this scene depicts so the sun must be out!

I added some fun embellishments including a felt cloud, my ribbon and big ole' bow, some Spellbinders flourish die cuts and a crystal button with a second bow tied from some pink and white baker's twine! A few pearls on my sunshine sentiment and a pearl in each corner are the finishing touches!

I hope you'll join us for this first challenge and every week! Stop by the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire you with today!
