Hello Sweet Bear

A new challenge blog called Just Cute Bears has recently started up, running a weekly challenge. 

For their first challenge we are asked to create a project with the theme 'One for the Girls' and the only requirement is to have a bear image on it.  There is a prize on offer, kindly sponsored by Cuddly Buddly Crafts.  Entries need to be in by 10pm UK time on saturday evening.

Here is my entry for the challenge, I used this lovely Popcorn Bear stamp, which I coloured with ProMarkers.  The BP is from the pad of My Minds Eye papers which came free with the February issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.  I created the lacy edge to the two paper layers with a Martha Stewart punch.

The round lacy layer behind the bear was cut using a Wizard Kaleidescope Pendant Shapabilities die, cut from pink pearl card which I had in my stash.  The sentiment is from a new set by The Greetings Farm which I bought recently.

I hope you've enjoyed viewing my card today and that you'll visit my blog again soon.  Tomorrow I will be sharing with you a creation using a stamp by Queen Kat Designs which will be posted on the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog.
