Whimsical Wednesdays " Anything Goes" Challenge



Hello everyone! It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This time the challenge is ANYTHING GOES.
Whimsical Designs is having a design team call for the upcoming term. Anyone who is interested in becoming a designer should click on the contact button at the Whimsical Designs Blog and e-mail Stephanie for more information.


For my project I created this super fun card. I cut a 4 inch circle from George and Basic Shapes for the background mat and stamped the hearts and sentiment around the outside which are both from Whimiscal Designs With Love stamp set.


The monster was cut from Mini Monsters at 3 inches and I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Cornie face stamp. To create the pleated ribbon, I ran ATG tape around the back side of the 4 inch stamped circle and pleated the ribbon around the outside. I then added another 4 inch circle to the back to sandwich in the ribbon. To finish I used a decorative corner punch and filled in the design with stickles.
I hope you will all play along this week and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT had created. Have a great day!
I am going to enter this at Celebrate The Occasion where the challenge is Poka Dots.

Oh GiGi, this is SO precious! I saw it and just kept giggling happily and showed my sweet boyfriend. (He likes it, too!) The pleated ribbon is gorgeous! It looks like a rosette! :o) The huggable monster is lovely and the sentiment looks beautiful embracing her. (That's how I view it! Hehe!) Lovely dots, gorgeous sparkle. Excellent work, my friend. :o)

Hugs and blessings!

There is no way you can't look at this and smile. This is one of the happiest, and fun cards I have ever seen. The trim adds the pretty factor, and the little monster and her face adds the cute factor. You have such a great knack and combining the two. Such a fun card to add for inspiration this week:)
