Friday Fun Day at Jo's Scrap Shack - FFC #13

Hello everyone, and thanks so much for stopping to visit. I'm sharing my first card done with a digi image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, one of the sponsors at Jo's Scrap Shack for the Friday Funday Challenge #13, Anything Goes. Isn't this little bear the most adorable creature?

- Digi was printed on Copic Xpress paper, colored with my trusty copic markers. It was so much fun to color him too. Airbrushed the blue background after diecutting with S/Binder Label #4.

- Green mat paper is from a 6x6 Christmas pack, probably one of the My Mind's Eye purchased on sale...and the border was a snippet from another piece in that same pack. Punched with an MS border punch. The mat was diecut with the S/Binder Gold #4, and I used wax paper before adding the DP, so it released extremely well. I like this die, but usually forget to use the wax paper and then have to fiddle to get the diecut out easily.

- Cardbase was covered with paper from a 6x6 My Mind's Eye Sweater Weather...I liked the rather Nordic look of the poinsettia design on the paper, and thought it would go well with the little bear.

- added some felt poinsettias (there's 2 glued together with Glossy Accents). No yellow pearls for stamens,  so I colored some light green pearls. It's great to be able to change these colors to one that works. Usually I will do this with white pearls, but couldn't find the size I needed - the tiny green ones were handy, so Voila! yellow stamens from green pearls.

- Hobby Lobby Paper Studio rhinestone holly motif was sale item that I've had for a few years, thought it worked on this card. Will add an Elizabeth Craft diecut sentiment to the bottom right corner when I'm ready to send this one to a specific person in my family who loves bears!

Hope you like this card. This Friday Funday Challenge, Anything Goes is a really fun one to try. Please go over to Jo's Scrap Shack to check on all the information and see the other fabulous digital stamps used by the Design Team.
