Whimsy Stamp showcase

This adorable stamp is by Crissy Armstrong.  I enjoyed inking it up with my Copics, using the icy blue's as the base color and adding pinky/reds to showcase it.  The stamp is from Whimsy Stamps called Mousy Candy Cane.  I paired it with a great sentiment stamp set called Season's Greetings Noteables 7 and then used the matching die cut Noteables 7's.  I added an embossed paper that I inked to match the designer papers.  A frame die cut and ribbon are added to highlight the image.  I love the new colors for a Christmas card and can't wait to share this one with someone this holiday season.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Make it Monday - Linky party
Incy Winy Designs - Inspired by candy
Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything goes
Card Mania - Pastel colors
Stampsalot - All creatures great and small
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
