Whimsy Inspirations

Happy Sunday, Everyone! Today I want to quickly share a card I made a while back but never got to posting.  It was just for fun, but now I have a reason to post it!  I took a turn hosting the Inspiration at Whimsy's Inspiration Blog!  I made this card using "Shy Ann" from the mythical collection by Katie Sowa.  I just love this little one!  I love her big eyes! I colored her with Copics and gold Stickles.  The flowers are from Wild Orchids and Michaels.  The background "paper" is actually a napkin that I originally bought to do the felted cardstock technique, but my plastic wrap was not cooperating! I used 2 SU oval punches, 1 McGillis branch punch and a corner punch for the center squares.  The ribbon is from a surplus store in my area. The sentiment is from Whimsy's "Spring Stepping" set.  I hope you love her as much as I do!  And please check out Whimsy's Inspiration blog now to get your Whimsy mojo flowing!
