The Sweetest

Welcome!  Today's card uses both the sketch and colors from MFT's latest challenges.  I'm also linking this up to the Clean and Simple challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

I colored up this sweet little bear using two of the challenge colors then cut it with my Scan n Cut.  I added Crystal Glaze to the honey and set it aside to dry.  The Summer Splash panel was clear embossed with Roses All Over and adhered to the left hand side of a top-folding card base.  I did some ink-blending onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, using distress inks that most closely matched the challenge colors, working from dark to light.  I then cut the piece with the Pierced Rectangle Stax die.

I was going to go with my usual white-embossed on black sentiment strip, but decided to be brave and add more color 😁  The Banana Split cardstock was stamped in black and then die-cut with a Pierced Fishtail Flag Stax die. 

Finally I added the bear with foam tape and called it done.

Thanks so much for visiting!
