Birthday Bear

This card is for my Brother who has his birthday in August, decided to go with a side stepper fold and used one of my new Lili Of The Valley stamps.

Attention To Detail:

The bear was coloured with my promarkers: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Mustard, Tulip Yellow, Gold, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Apple, Leaf Green and cool grey 1,2. I have added a few highlights with my white gel pen.

The papers I have used are from "First Edition - Animal Antics" (bargain 12 x 12 stack found at Dunelm Mill). I added some "Bakers Divine Twine and cream buttons" from "Ribbon Girl" and some gems from my stash.

The sentiments on the front and inside of the card are also "Lili Of The Valley". I always struggle with male cards, but I'm quite happy with how this one has turned out.


I'm entering the following:

Alphabet Blog - O - only 3 embellishments (I took this to mean 3 different types i.e. ribbon, buttons, gems. But if this wrong please scratch me off)

Colour Create Challenge - #77 Blue, Green, White, Red and Brown.

Cards For Men - #17 Anything goes.
