CCM 107 Bear With Me

We have a very slight change of name over at Crafty Cardmakers and from now one we are known as Crafty Cardmakers and More. We changed the name because we wanted to make it clear we are not just about making cards… although having said that our first challenge this year is a card one!

We are sponsored by Flourish With a Bling, with a fabulous AUD$15 prize certificate for their store.

Our theme is Bear With Me, so we would like to see ANY kind of bear as your main image or focal point of your creation. I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp called Teddy with Flower for my bear and coloured him with promarkers and copics.

107 Bear With Me

The papers on my card are from Craftwork Cards from the kit that was recently a Pick of the Day on Create and Craft/Ideal World, a gorgeous set of two paper pads with matchine pads of decorative precut flowers which you can push out and layer up to add interest to your project. I have added some glitter to the edges of the petals on both flowers, although it’s not showing up overly well here. The lovely daisy glittery mat is some vellum I have had in my stash for *coughs* more years than I like to admit. It’s by K & Co. The mat directly behind the teddy image was cut with a spellbinder die.

I am entering this into the following:-
