Sharing the Warmth


It's Wednesday again and time for another challenge at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog. This week the theme is use flowers on your card or project.  Up for grabs is a $15 gift certificate to the Whimsy Store and also...As well as a random winner being chosen, one entrant who has used a Whimsy image will have the opportunity to be a guest designer for a future challenge. Be sure to head on over to see what the rest of the gals have come up with for inspiration.
For my card, I chose one of Whimsy's November new release digis called Sharing the Warmth.  Now I'm not big on mice but I do think these two little guys are quite cute so as long as they are 'pretend mice', I'm ok with it.
I had originally made the card for a monochromatic challenge but decided on another and this one fits this challenge perfectly.  The papers are some I've had in my stash forever - it was a big package of paper I'd bought at Walmart a long time ago and it is sort of a 'no name' brand, I guess.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Winter Letter Seals set.  That collection is so versatile and I use it again and again and again!  I coloured the image with Copics and the flowers were a Christmas gift last year and I simply added some matching brads to the centers.
