Whimsy Stamps: Summer Day Emma

2/02/2010 08:20:00 AM

Hm, sometimes I think it's summer already and sometimes Southern California surprises me with a little bit more rain. I thought it was a little funny that the week before CHA, it was raining here. Way to show our visitors the sunshine, California! Speaking of CHA, I wish I could have gone (I'm only 30 minutes away from Anaheim), but it's at least nice to see all the new stuff that was released. I don't know about you, but I'm drooling over the new BasicGrey papers! Time to break the piggy bank again, lol.

Anywho, on to my card. I've used Whimsy Stamps Summer Day Emma on my card and wow, isn't this such a gorgeous image? I love the hair being blown by the wind. I chose to go with these colors because I got tired of seeing so much pink and reds from my cards lately. Also, I think this stamp has just enough detail - not too much where I get tired of coloring and not too little where I can't add my own interpretation. I loved adding the pearls to the flowers and butterfly too - I think they're an extra little touch. You can purchase the stamp here.

And hey, if you haven't signed up for the Whimsy Groups on SNR, then you're missing out! We have weekly challenges and this week's challenge is Use Lots of Frills! Our host is Janna and she is asking us to pretty much make a girlie and feminine card using a Whimsy Stamp.
