Whimsical Wednesday "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello everyone!

I am so excited, Whimsical Wednesday has begun again and today is our first challenge!!!

If you are new to Whimsical Wednesday, each week we have a new challenge for you and some wonderful prizes up for grabs. There is a lot of challenges ahead and I hope you'll join us for some fun.

The theme this week is "Anything Goes".  We have a fabulous design team and they have come up with some fantastic inspiration for you. Please stop by the blog and leave them some love!!!

For my project this week I've made a card with a window and mini blinds!!

The tutorial for making these mini blinds is from SplitcoastStampers and you can find it here.

I used papers from Pebbles, the penguin is from postage2stamp by The Stamps of Life, the snowman is from Warm Hearts by Paper Smooches and the sentiment is from Snow Much Fun by our own Stephanie of Whimsical Designs and you can purchase it here.

Supplies used: card stock - white, grey, blue; patterned papers from Snowy Days by Pebbles; stamps - snowman from Warm Hearts by paper Smooches, penguin from postage2stamp by The Stamps of Life and sentiment from Snow Much Fun by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Copic markers; ribbon - Michaels; sticker - Jolee's; A2 matting Basics Nestabilities by Spellbinder; Pop Dots.

Thanks for stopping by and now pop on over to Whimsical Designs and see the rest of the design teams fabulous creations!!!
