A WHIMSY SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hi all, I am back with my second post of the day so please scroll down for the first one!! Today is Whimsy Challenge day and we have a fabulous sketch provided by the very talented Emily!! She does wonderful sketches and this one is awesome!!!! I used one of the new Whimsy releases called Princess Emma - I just love her, she is sooo much fun to color! Such a fun stamp!! I used her to make a birthday card for a friend's daughter who is having a princess party, I thought this would be perfect for her!! I also blinged her crown, wand, and necklace with some Dazzling Diamonds and added some white puffy paint to the collar of her dress - too fun!! Make sure you head on over to the Whimsy challenge site and check out what the rest of the uber talented DT gals did, they really rocked the sketch!!! And, why not play along? There is always a fabulous Whimsy stamp as a prize for one lucky winner and no, you do not have to have Whimsy stamps to play along, but if you use a Whimsy image, you will get TWO chances at winning, WHOOHOO!!! Can't wait to see what you all do with the sketch!!
