It is Sunday so that means it is a new Stempeltraume challenge. Today's theme is Animals! My biggest challenge was what Animal to use. I decided on this Sassy Cheryl freebie! I just fell in love with him when I saw it. We all have animal stamps. Play along! You can win a prize for just doing what you love!
The other wonderful challenge themes this card meets are:
Secret Crafter - Distressing - I distressed the edges of the CS. I think it really looks good with the colors that I chose for this.
Dare you to digi - Flowers - This was easy. The bear is holding flowers and I added flowers at the bottom.
Simple Doodles - Not a spring Chicken - You need to use something that is old. Mine are the dew drops. I bought a whole bunch of these when they first came out and I never use them. I'm not sure why but they are not something I ever pick up. The ribbon is also old. I found it at the bottom of my ribbon holder. I had just enough to make this bow.
S2G - Spring has sprung with Flowers - At my house one of the things that says Spring are the Bees. I have a real problem with them every year. Unfortunetly they are not as cute as the one on this card. I love the flowers that this bear is holding. It looks like he just picked them from the garden.
Fab & Funky - Get it all out - These challenges are a challenge for me because I always want to use my new stuff but .... I really needed something different than brads or pearls so I used my dew drops. I can't remember the last time I put these on a card. I used 8 on this card which is good to use up some of my stash of them.
Crafty Creations - Distressing - I distressed the CS. I have always liked a distressing on cads. It adds texture without adding additional items. I thought it fit well with this card.
Everybody Art - Sketch. - I loved this sketch when I saw it. Once I picked the stamp to use for this weeks challenge I knew I could use this sketch. I love the way this came out.
Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday - I thought this would make a cute Birthday card. The Bear with the flowers reminds me of kids when they pick the flowers in the backyard and give them to you like they are a bouquet of roses.
A Spoonful of Sugar - Happy Birthday - This is the one time of the year I have no family Birthdays. I guess this card will go into my file for the future. It's always good to have them already made.
Pile it on - Spring - Flowers and Bees - Hello Spring! I love flowers, and hate the bees they attract but this one is cute and can't sting me.
Stamp with Fun - Animals - I love this little bear. I couldn't wait to use him!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like my card. Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment. I love hearing from everyone.
