For my card, to introduce the New Whimsy February Release, I used the darling little Dandelion Girl by the amazing Sylvia Zet...and isn't she a little sweetie!! She, along with all of the other new releases, are available today at the Whimsy Store.



I used Bazzil for the base and for all double matting, the DP is from the Country Rose Collection, and all panels are machine stitched. The darling image was stamped on X-press It Blending Card and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, adding a bit of Star Dust Stickles for the lace on her dress. The sentiment is from the new Fanciful Birthday Notables 1 cut out with a coordinating die. All of the floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1 1/2" Trellis Rose, 1" Open Roses, 3/4" Open Roses, and Hip Rosebuds. The front was finished with Self-Adhesive Pearls.



On the inside I used some 1/2" Satin Ribbon to hold a silver heart slider with some pearl scallop trim from my stash and on the jotting panel a portion of a Self-Adhesive Pearl Swirl.

Don't forget to visit today's DT and leave a comment on their blog posts to be entered into the draw to win a new release stamp, then pop back to the Whimsy blog tomorrow for the next list of showcase posts!
