Just Cute Bears Challenge #36 - Swirls & Bling

Happy Sunday morning to you, hope it's a great day whatever you have planned!

This week Just Cute Bears Challenge #36 has the theme of  'Swirls & Bling'.  For my DT card I used this sweet girly bear with her huge teapot, from Cuddly Buddly. 

The background paper is from the DCWV Pocketful of Posies stack.  I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers, adding touches of Stickles and Glossy Accents before cutting her out with a deckle edge rectangle nestabilities die.  The image was then attached to a layer of golden yellow card cut with a larger die from the same set.  The lacy edges top and bottom were cut with a Martha Stewart border punch from cream card and the swirls punched out using an EK Success punch.  I finally added amber coloured gems in two sizes to the swirls and sentiment to give me swirls and bling for the theme.

I hope you'll enter our challenge this week, we love visiting your blogs to check out your projects.
