Jacque - and that's ME!!!

 
 
For my card I used the darling little Polly Picnic by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps. She was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Stardust Stickles. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Dovecraft Tea Party paper pack. For the horizontal I used pink satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow and on each side of the ribbon I used Lace Tape. The flowers are Cottage Roses and Hip Rose Buds from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little cupcake diecut was designed by Jolanda Bergmans of Noor! Design and I added a pink pompon to the top. Finally I added some pearls to the upper corners.
 
Here is a view of the easel card opened...and sorry for the quality of my pictures...I am no photographer...lol
 
For the base of my card I have used a sentiment from the NEW Everyday Sliders 1 cut out with the NEW Slider 1 Die tied with more satin ribbon. The sentiment was propped up with dimensional tape to serve as a stop for the front panel. To finish the base I added more pearl trim and a couple of single pearls.
 

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

If you would like to join us as our Guest Designer for our March 2013 release please go to our Guest Designer Contest page to read all about how to enter. Entries close at 12.00pm (EST) on Wednesday 30 January 2013.
