Whimsy Challenge and then some...

Good Morning, and Happy Monday!  It was a busy weekend for me, but I got some much needed time with my dearest friend!  So it was worthwhile :)  My card for Whimsy Challenge this week is using the newest digital image from Whimsy...A Teddy for Paige.  All proceeds from the sale of this image go directly into an account for Paige Welch, a young girl who just experienced a terrible ordeal and lost part of her arm.  To read her story click HERE.  To purchase the image, go to Whimsy Stamps.  My friend, Erin, is having a card drive to help cheer Paige up, so if you have the time, please hop over to Erin's blog for the details. You even have the chance to win some YUMMY blog candy!  So...for the card!  Teddy was colored with colored pencils and matched to the DSP's in "Fun Fall Colors!" (Whimsy's challenge this week!)  I used the sketch from Allsorts and focused on 2 colors to fit their challenge.  I think that's all for now! Please check out the rest of the DT samples here!  And while you're there, we are having a DT call!  Sadly, one of our members has decided to step down, and one stepped up, so that opens 2 positions!  Please see Whimsy for details! Have a great day!

My Time to Craft:  Polka Dots (DSP on right corner, center flower)
Allsorts:  Sketch + 2 colors (I focused on brown and orange)
Lili of the Valley:  Brown, Orange and Green (only hints of green on the right corner and the leaves)

Charisma Cardz:  Patchwork ( I have 5 different DSP's in a patchwork pattern)
LaLaLand:  Distressing
Whimsy Challenge:  Fun Fall Colors
