Special Vintage Girls Release Blog Hop!

Hello, my friends!

I'm very excited to be participating in the Whimsy Stamps special 
Vintage Girls Release Blog Hop!!

There are 4 Brand new images to share with you today, created by the Lovely Lia Stampz.

All Whimsy Stamps digital images are 300dpi for high print quality.
You can re-size, flip, or rotate to fit your own project. 
To find all of today's new releases please visit the Whimsy Stamps Store.

Don't forget to leave comments along the way, as there will be 4 mystery DT Members who will each be choosing a winner from the comments left on their hop posts!
These winners will each receive a Vintage Girl digital image of their choice.

The Grand Prize winner of the hop will be chosen from the very last stop, which is Lia.
This winner will receive all 4 of the brand new Vintage Girl digital stamps, 
from the Whimsy Stamps Store.'s my card using the lovely "Tea Girl" image.

Isn't she pretty? This image was so much fun to play with!

I cut my shaped card out with my Cricut, and then added a doily die. After coloring my image, I fussy cut it out and adhered it over the doily with dimensionals. I made the flowers using a combination of punches, and placed some pearls in the centers. I also added a pearl to the flower in her hat, and some pearl earrings. In the corner I added a pretty sheer bow. The final step was to add Glossy Accents to the "tea" in the cup. 
You can see it better in the photo below:

Beautiful colors Nancy! Your card is quite smashing and the little lady perched on top of the tea cup looks like she is trying to lure the waiter. She knows he can't get off work now no matter how many times she dunks her tea bag!
