Whimsy DT And Challenges

Wow, its been a scorcher here today. Temperature topped 31 degrees and its now very muggy. For this card I have used "Princess Emma" from Whimsy Stamps. She's one of my favourites and of course her beautiful dress can be coloured any way that you desire. I have used papers from MME Penny Lane. Paper pieced her dress and coloured with Promarkers. Used my MS Lattice Punch for the border. All the other bits are from my stash. Was intending to add an insert from Bearly Mine Designs, but the printer has ran out of pink ink and I wont have the time to get a refill before my holiday.

This card was made with several challenges in mind;
Everybody Art - Butterfly
One Stop Craft Challenge - Swirls and Pearls
Stamp Something - Paper Piecing

Whimsy Stamps also has a weekly Challenge Blog. You DO NOT have to use their products to enter, all are welcome.
Now must feed the children and have another tidy. Its so nice to be able to take my laptop into any room now, means I can multi task LOL
Thanks for looking and see you in the morning with my Stampin For The Weekend DT card.
