Sending Bear Hugs!

Products Used: Paper by Basicgrey and Making memories. Pearls by Zva Creative. Flowers were in my stash which I added small buttons and diamond dust. Paper Lace was created using flower border punch by Martha Stewart. The Sentiment was a freebie from Raindrop Echo Designs and the bear was a freebie from Wendy Made. Charm was printed using a Kraft color paper and the image was colored with art colored pencils.

This card will be another Thank You card for the ladies in the office ... It's Wednesday morning and I only have two done! YIKES!

I followed a color combination of Kraft, yellow, and white for this card as well as a sketch and recipe!! I think that is the hardest three things to incorporate as they all limit my choices so much!! But I am looking at the card now and really liking the way it turned out - it looks so classy and pretty. This is going to be great for one particular woman in the office who has the personality and character to match the beauty of this card!

Challenges entered:
Design Dollies - Kraft, White, and Yellow (tough but accomplished)
Basicgrey Challenges - Pearls (under the flowers)
Paper Play - 2DPs, 3flowers, 1ribbon, 1charm - (Again, tough but I did it!!)
Charisma Cardz - Teddy Bears (Perfect digi for this challenges :) )
Papercraft Star - Buttons, bows, and bling (buttons on the flowers, bow in the ribbon, and bling added to the flowers)
PaperTake Weekly - Something old, new, borrowed, blue (I got two! Old: My ribbon - by a couple years haha - New: the sentiment and digi as well as the paper lace - I just got that border punch!!)
Cupcake Crafts - Lace (Paper lace across top)
Crafty Calendar - Sketch (LOVED this sketch!!)
