Bentley Bear....



September...... can you believe how fast this year is going?

We're moving towards Spring in Australia and here in Sydney we've been enjoying some beautiful sunny days.  Cool come evening time, but never the less the days are getting longer so Summer is on it's way... yeah!!

Today's little card uses a stamp that was part of a little set stuck on the front of a card making magazine.  I confess, I saw the stamp and thought..... why not!

I've used Prisma's and OMS with a couple of Copic markers to colour  before cutting with a Spellbinder die.  Some light sponging whilst in the die just to take away from all the white, especially as the DP is mostly white too.  The card is a matchbook one bought in a pack with envelopes from 'The PaperMill'.
Some stitched ribbon from my stash and a couple of ABS pearl hearts complete this little card.

This little card is entered into the challenge here:     A Crafty Little Place - anything goes.


I hope you'll come back soon I have some fun stuff to share - probably by the week-end..........

Yeah, I'm with you - thought the same thing when I saw it and purchased the mag. Your card is really cute - I haven't used mine yet, but might be inspired to now.
