CYP 95 - Beary Wishes - Crafty Sentiments

This week has been quite a challenge - that's why I am excited to see Monday come again... It's a new week! Time for a fresh start! Also time for another challenge at Craft Your Passion. This week we got a chance to work with some adorable images from our sponsor Crafty Sentiments - just too cute. Our theme is Beary Wishes - your project must have bears on it. I picked this cutie-patootie image with this sweet fuzzy bear sitting on a giant mushroom. I colored him with my Copics, and distressed the edges with sepia ink. Isn't he precious? I added a bunch of layers of My Minds Eye design papers, a hand-stitched zigzag border and a simple metal sentiment. It's truly a simple design, but it looks like I spent hours. I love that in a card!

Go dust off your bear stamps or hunt through your digi's and find that bear image - then create away and join us at Craft Your Passion Challenges. You'll be entered for a chance to win some great prizes, including images from Crafty Sentiments and a $10 voucher for Robins Nest.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Karen's Doodles - #97 - Cute and Cuddly
Pollycraft Monday - #125 - Favorite Things (I love love love this set of papers)
Make it Monday - #74 - Linky Party
Color Throwdown - #176
Mark's Finest Papers - #92 - Layers

Thanks for stopping by. Here's hoping this week is better than the last!!!
