Whimsy Stamps Monthly Challenge - Anything Goes (wooo-hooo!!!)

Where did July go? No, seriously, whoever took it please give it back!!!

On a bright side it's time for a new monthly challenge on Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog - ANYTHING GOES this time, how cool is that!! The winner gets to pick 5 digital images from Whimsy Stamps, just remember that to qualify for prize draw you must use a Whimsy image on your project.

Now, enough babblin' and straight to my card. I have used fresh-from-oven-released-today image from Crissy Armstrong. It's called Rose Butterfly and I think if I ever considered having a tattoo done it would be either that or my blood type.

Won't happen though. And if it did then no, I would NOT show you. Look at my card instead, lol!


Mmmmmm...chocolate butterfly... The colour scheme was (clearly) inspired by those lush MME papers. And I've lost my Copic notes again. I swear, the first free sans toddlers no card due tomorrow moment I get will be dedicated to tidying up the craft area a bit. There's piles there. It's scrunchy under feet. Scary.


The sentiment is from a digital Get Well sentiments set by Raindrop Echo.

What you've done with these butterflies is so magical! I bought them and had to come back and find yours for inspiration. I love the carefree and fragility of them!
