MMSC#57 Bear on a Swing

My image this week is from Sue at McMahon Five called "Bear on Swing". Isn't he just the cutest. I used my new Butterfly Martha Stewart PATP punch for this card, the Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and the Martha Stewart deep lattice punch. Those cute flourish swirls were found at Micheal's. My flower trim was made from the Spellbinders sunflower die cut. Crystal Effects was applied to the image cut out and pop dotted.

This is a picture of my card and the envelope that I made to go with it. I changed up the flowers on the envelope and put them in the corners.

This is the inside of my card with the envelope in the background. As you can see I carried the theme to the inside as well.

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge - Die Cuts
One Stitch In Time - Boys to Men
Paper Sundaes - Summer Fun
Raise The Bar - Celebrate Summer
Stamp Something - Stamp Something Digi
Teddy Stampers - Movie Inspiration-Going My Way-Bing Crosby Sings Swinging on a Star!
Your Next Stamp Challenge - Use Border Punch!

Your card is beautifully happy as always Carol. I know that if I have a bad day I will stop by your blog. Your colorful cards always makes me smile.

You are right about the car - I am so so sorry, but I don't have it. But there are 5 more lies there and only 1 statment to be true ;o)

I think I must come to USA. You and me could buy a 69 Sting Ray and cruise from cost to cost. I will start saving right away ;o)
