Around and Around We Go

For my Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop go to HERE:

Hi everyone !!!!   I have been doing some blog hopping and checking out different challenges.  I have to say I am a little bit overwhelmed with all the challenges that are out there.  I stumbled upon the Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog the other day.  On the Challenge blog they give you a new sketch to follow every 2 weeks.  You can rotate the sketch, resize the elements and add extra elements if needed. 

The next part of the challenge is to use your newest or neglected stash on the card you create to enter the challenge. You can use new/neglected paper, new/neglected stamp, new/neglected embellishments etc. They can all be new/neglected or just one thing which is new/neglected, that's up to you!
When you're posting your card on your blog please let everyone know what your new/neglected items are, the make or manufacturer and a link to where you bought it from if possible!
But most importantly, HAVE FUN!!

 I thought this sounded like a great challenge and decided to try my hand at it.  I am submitting the following card for the challenge. 

This card uses neglected papers that I have had for over a year, have no clue where I got them from.  It uses new ribbon from Michael's and a new digital image from Whimsy Stamps. 

Here's a close up of my image, which is called "Dance of Love", which is a digital image created by Crissy for Whimsy Stamps

My image is printed onto Cryogen Iridescent white card stock and colored with my Copics. 

As you can tell this card was made a little bit more simple.  I didn't use too many embellishments or too many papers, etc.... This would I guess be considered a Clear and Simple card for me.  As I always use alot of embellishments or sparkle on my cards.
Challenges that I'm entering this card into:
Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog - use anything that is new or neglected
Stamp Something - use a digi
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge - anything goes as long as it includes an animal
Totally Gorjuss - challenge 62 its a sketch
Inky Impressions Challenge - Ribbon & Pearls

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Whimsy Stamps "Dance of Love" digital image
Paper: AC card stock, sparkling hearts paper (don't know where it came from)
Copics: BG01, BG000, BG0000, BG05, BG07, BG09, R20, R22, R24, R27,W0, W1, W3, W4, W5, W6
