Beary Birthday

Hi all!  I've had a few days off work and, wouldn't you know it, on the second day I got a nasty cold!  Murphy's Law!  Anyway, I made a couple of cards for challenges before I got sick, so here's the first one.  For this one I used the sketch from MFT Stamps and the colors from Color Throwdown.


I stamped, colored and die-cut the images before arranging them around a polaroid frame.  Then I set to work on the card base with the curved panels.  I decided to go with a piece of watercolor wash paper in a pale pink color die-cut at both ends with a Stitched Basic Edges 2 die..  From there I adhered my polaroid frame and images and then a stacked die-cut work, painted with clear sparkle pen for some shimmer.

I finished the card with some Nuvo Jewel Drops.


Thanks for visiting!
