Heart 2 Heart - Whimsy-cal

The theme this week at Heart 2 Heart is Whimsy-cal. There is a reason for spelling the title the way it is... Whimsy is the name of one of the paper collections at Close To my Heart. One could also interpret whimsical in a variety of ways... That is left up to the participant of the challenge. 

I chose to use the Whimsy paper collection. That collection contains soft, pastel-like colours. 

The card that I made is based on an old sketch that I have kept for quite some time. The wreath is from one of the Close To My Heart stamp and die cut combinations. I coloured the leaves using two ShinHan markers. The tiny flowers were actually cut on the Cricut - sized at 1/4"... The embossed card stock was sanded as I wanted the white core of the cardstock to stand out.

Love the wreath with the little tiny flowers, can't wait until I get that thin-cut special they had at CTMH. oh wait I forgot I already got it...buried in my stash already and haven't even used it yet...gotta use it. Pink and green look so well together, great whimsy choices.
