Happy Sunday!! This is my second post for the day so if you are here for my Stampin Sister in Christ challenge creation, please scroll down to my next post.
Whimsy is now selling digital and rubber stamp images!!! Tommorrow we will be having a blog hop for our new release. The digis are illustrated by the uber talented Katie Sowa and Crissy Armstrong.

Today's sneak is super special because many of the Whimsy team members are guests to Crissy Armstrong's first challenge!! How appropriate to use one of her images for the challenge!!Crissy's challenge is to create a combo of something on your creation. It can be a combo of embellishments, combo of challenges, combo of designer paper...
I used Crissy's image Pebbles the Cat created for Whimsy Stamps and the Pebbles the Cat Sentiments. The details on this fluffy cat are amazing and so fun to color.
I combined stitching, embellishments, challenges, and designer paper.

The sketch is from Friday Sketchers. The dp is Basic Grey Kioshi. I also incorporated the following challenges for my combo:

Simple Doodles - inspire others
Stampin for the Weekend- Ribbons and bows
Stamping Vacation: Pick 3 (die cut machine, two buttons (two of one embellishement), faux or real stitching
Stamp Something- stitching
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Bought It, Use It (my lace- one of my last pieces I have been hoo!)
Tellen's Place: Anything Goes
Sew Many Cards Challenge/Lets see some stitching
Caardvarks - Lacy Days
Stamp With Fun- Reciep (3 flowers, 3 designer papers, 2 buttons)
Scrappy Frogs- pick 3 (dry embossing, die cuts, plaid)
A different challenge a week - something beginning with b (buttons)
Creative Belli- color spray
Stamp with Sarah Kay- green
Simon says Stamp: for a child
Oh Alice in Wonderland challenge - flowers
Sophisticat Challenge: Raining cats and dogs
Our Creative Corner - Bows
