Vintage Whimsy!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far! I am very excited becuase I have been given the opportunity to be a guest design team member for the fabulous Whimsy Stamps! I have been a big fan of Whimsy Stamps products for a long time so I was thrilled to get a chance to design a card for their challenge blog. The theme this week is 'vintage / shabby chic' and I have used one of the sweet images designed by Crissy Armstrong called 'nose to nose'. I just love all of Crissy's images and they are so fun to colour! My vintage post card stamp (how awesome is that!), corners, and sentiment (and matching die) are also from Whimsy Stamps. I inked the edges of all my papers with distress ink in 'broken china' and 'tea die' to give a bit of a vintage feel. I spritzed my flowers with glimmer mist in 'peacock' and 'banana pudding'.
Please join us over at Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenges for out vintage / shabby chic challenge!
