Whimsical Wednesday "Sketch It" Challenge...

Hello my fellow crafters!
I know I've been MIA for a couple of weeks, but I'm back and ready to get crafty with another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!
This week, our challenge is to make a card or layout using this sketch

which was provided by my fellow Design Team member, Nanne!

Now, for the card I made! ;)

It's a really simple card, and mostly because I have THE hardest time making cards! I used Kraft cardstock for the base and then pop-dotted on that a layer of cream cardstock with some blue patterned paper from My Mind's Eye "Moments" 6"x6" paper pad. I distressed all the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and even lightly ran a distressing tool to the edges of the blue patterned paper. I used a strip of stain navy ribbon to break up the paper a bit instead of using another piece of paper as seen on the sketch. 

I stamped and embossed one of the flourish images from one of Tim Holtz's stamps in the top right corner instead of the bottom left. For the sentiment, I used one of the stamps from Whimsical Design's   "Everyday Sentiments". And the really adorable bear? I paper pieced him (my VERY first time trying out this technique) from a digital stamp image provided to us by our generous sponsor this week, Shelley's Images!

So what do you have a chance to win this week? A $9.00 voucher! All you have to do is hop on over to the Whimsical Designs blog and submit your entry into the challenge! Easy peasy, right? So I hope to see your wonderful creations over on the blog!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week! ;)
