Magical Monday ...... Lucky Bear

Second post of the day scroll down for my note cards.



Hello,

This weeks cute image from Nina of TMITA/PCC is 'Lucky Bear'. Nilla's turn to challenge us today and she asked for some distressing, Use any technique for distressing, roughing up your paper with your scissors, distressing with inks, sanding, scraping.

So for my card I started with a base card of SU Sahara Sand.I distressed pale pink card and the spotted dp,using the blades on my scissors and rolling the card slightly. Layered them turning one corner on the dotted card and stitched a couple of rows of 'not so straight stitch' around all four sides.
Lucky was printed, coloured with Copic markers and cut out. For the clover leaf motiff (I'm calling balloons) I added some fine silk ribbon tied in a bow.
Lucky sits, popped up with foam over a piece of green hand cut paper that grounds him.......he's walking on grass holding his balloons!
I added the button over the turned down corner and a lace bow with a button centre in the opposite corner.
The Birthday wishes sentiment is from a GKD set , stamped onto some pale pink card and cut with a Spellbinder Petite Oval die.
Thanks Nilla this was a fun challenge, I hope you'll all join in this week. We love seeing what you come up with.
As always Nina has a prize for the randomly picked winner.

I also know there are lots more new images over at PCC so why not drop by for a browse.......

Till next time........
