"Ted" Card Challenge

A new card challenge at Red Carpet Studio begins today!  The theme is "Ted", make a card with a Teddy Bear in it.  So, break out those cute bear images and create!  The sponsor for this weeks challenge is Squigglefly.  The prize is 3 digital images of the winner's choice (including sets).

They've got some cute images like the one I used in my card below. (Balloon Bear)

This bear image is so darn cute!  Loved it first time I saw it.  Here's how I made it.  I printed off several of the balloon bear images and coloured in 4 of the balloons with my Spectrum Noir markers. I coloured in one of the bears.  I fussy cut everything out and attached some thread to the back of the balloons and then the bear.  This was a bit fiddly but worth it.  I stamped the cloud with a light blue/grey chalk ink and attached the balloons and bear with foam tape.  Except one balloon is flat instead of raised.  Attached panel to dark purple panel then attached to card base.  Really like how this turned out.

I hope you all can join in the fun!  Have a fabulous day!

I'm also going to enter this into the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge "Make Your Mark".
