MMSC#12 Happy Birthday Bear

Well, look what we have today....a bear!!! I can't go for too long without making a bear card, I was getting jittery because I haven't done one. lol Today's card was for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge at Priscilla's blog. Some great prizes, a chance for a guest designer spot and some cash are up for grabs, so check it out!!!

I made my own paper pieced bear pattern for this card. I did ribbon embroidery on the left edge of my tag just like what is pictured on the sketch. I love how it looks and plan to do it again. Happy Birthday was cut on my cricut. I used Martha Stewart's border punch, frond, and branch punch. The swirl is made with a sizzx die. Love those hot pink rhinestones and I love the foo foo I tied on the tag.

When I look at this card...the colors remind me of something I should have in my lingerie draw...and if I don't have it....I should run out to Victoria's Secret and get it. Are these colors sexy or what??? I love it. lol Below is the sketch that we were given for this challenge. I enjoyed this challenge very much and know you will too!!!

You know, Carol, I can't seem to pick a favorite out of your cards. I love them all soooo much! I have to say though that I do really love the pink and black color combo. It is one of my favorites. I think the black dots really add something special to this card, but there are so many wonderful details that I can't really pinpoint just one that makes it so fabulous. I adore the border punches and the gorgeous ribbon. Oh wow, even the flower. See, I am rambling. I just love the whole thing. I should just leave it at that!! It is a joy to come and see your creations each week. Thank you so much for playing with us at the MMSC this week. Hope you will play again. You won't want to miss all the fun and exciting things coming up.

I agree with Carolyn on your cards, Carol! This one is DA BOMB. Lol! I think those pink and black colors do remind me of Victoria's. And I adore all those little details you put in. I can tell you are having fun with this bear, and we can tell you are getting happier and finding a place where all your creativity is ready to roll out! xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT
