Whimsy card

I had this idea from the time I won Princess Coach over a month ago. Thanks Denise. My DD when I told her my idea, she said I was crazy. I wanted something to pull my coach but all my other animals are small but maybe a bunch of turtles could pull this coach. This is an idea to think about. I used the Whimsy Polar Bear to pull the coach. I used Mary Arts ribbon. I love the texture and feel of this ribbon. I cut slits in the cardstock with an exacto knife. I colored the images with Twinkling H2O's. The DP is Euphoria from Basic Grey. I used White Diamond from Paper Temptress. This paper is amazing. I cut the slits and the paper didn't tear as I threaded the ribbon through. I stamped the images than embossed them with clear embossing to make the coloring easier. I used Dew Drops to add more glitter. The corner saying is Cotton Candy paper from Paper Temptress. The ribbon is the reverse of the ribbon around the bear.
The sketch is from Stamps & Smiles Sketch challenge to celebrate their first release.

This card is for Whimsy DT call, & Cute Card Thursday. & Stamps & Smiles Sketch

  7. Where do you buy your dew drops, Anita? Do you find them around here or order them online? I have seen so many people use them but I don't think any of our stores sell them.
