Beary Thankful

It seems I never create anything anymore unless I am knocking something off my list of design team work.   I tend to restrict myself to that to keep this little hobby of mine in check and in balance with work and family life.  However, I recently peeked at the Whimsie Doodles website and fell in love with the sweet Garden Bear.  So, I got all wild and crazy in true paper crafting nerd style and spend my Friday night creating a card with that image.

I started by die cutting that panel with the Simon Says Stamp "Thanks Card" wafer die.  I sponged on some distress inks.   I used the largest die from the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes to create the stitched border on the white panel.

I colored my image with copics and used a a white gel pen to add the polka dots to the ribbon her hat an on the heart on the watering can.  I added a gold sequin to the sunflower for a little embellishment.

I am entering this card in the Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #89 (use a die cut) and the Whimsie Doodles April Challenge
