Another Earth Day Challenge!!

Welcome to another Whimsie Wednesday!

Thanh is the host over at
Whimsie Doodle's Paper Craft Planet for this week's challenge.   April 22 is Earth Day and she has challenged us to create a project to promote saving the Earth.

What does Earth Day mean to you? 
How are you reducing your ecological foot print?

Things you could do are:
  • use a recycled item on your project from around your house
  • have a reduce, reuse, recycle message
  • incorporate a save Earth message (using the WD stamp - see below)
  • paint or stamp with household objects
  • make a project with only scraps and as many scraps as you can using earthy stuff
  • use earthy colors
  • incorporate all of the above into one!
At Whimsie Doodles, we believe in reducing our ecological footprint hence why most of our images are digi! To help spread the message, we're going to be giving away our Save Earth digi for a limited time.

For my challenge card today I used the above stamp and sentiment to create a card.  I enlarged the cupcake so it was roughly 4" x 5" and printed it so the the left side would overlap the fold and become the hinge for the card!

I used Copics to color my image and also paper pieced the cupcake wrapper using October Afternoon DP.  The heart and bow are layered and also colored with Copics.  The button is from Clear and Simple Stamps.

Here is the inside of the card!!  I thought I might offer this one to my son to bring to his girlfriend at school for Earth Day tomorrow along with a handful of chocolate kisses!!  If you decide to get this free image while it lasts, we sure would love to see what you do with it!  Head on over to the PCP Whimsie Doodles forum and play along with our challenge!  If you upload your creation to any online galleries, be sure to use the keywords whimsiedoodles and WWC28.

Have a wonderful, whimsical Wednesday and may your bucket overflow with ideas to help save our earth and minimize the footprint we leave on it!
