Whimsy DT Call

Hi I have been looking at this amazing opportunity over at 
Whimsy Inspirations Blog 
they are having a DT Call which is closing really soon and I have decided to try my hand. As my old Nan would say you have to be in it to win it. So keep your fingers crossed for me. It is to work with their stamps and dies wow how amazing would that be. They have some fabulous artists so to be allowed to make cards with their images would be a dream.
I have a brand new card using a Make It Crafty Digi but their Love collection. I am equally happy to work with both Stamps as well as Digital images and have included a couple of older cards I have made using stamps also showing different styles.
My Card features the Make it Crafty - Geeky Love Kiss
Wp is First Edition and I have used a Spellbinders corner die. Large Gem Button and the dress has lots of glitter on the dress and veil but not sure if it shows. The image has been coloured with my promarkers the same as the Wee stamp card below. Satin ribbon and some Silver wedding rings for embellishment

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Miss Muffet - ATG,  Moving along with the times - sparkle & shine, A Crafty Mess - ATG
Artbymiran - ATG

Now onto some past cards

This one is using a Wee Stamp set called Flower Fairies which you can purchased here

This one is a Stamp Sentiment and show use of dies

I do hope you like my cards and  wish me luck I think this would be a dream job.
