Congratulations



Hope you having a great weekend.  The sun is shining here, and it looks warm, but actually the temp is still in the 30's.  At least we don't have snow like so many people but I'm anxious for warmer weather.

I thought this little bear from the  "Oh Baby" stamp set from Gina K Designs should be in a frame.  This type of frame is called "Folded Paper Frame" and is very dimensional.  There is a tutorial over on SCS here.

A piece of glittery, double sided,  Martha Stewart dp was used for the frame and the background; also a piece of YoYo yellow cs.   Nestabilities were used for the circles.  The larger circle was embossed with the Cuttlebug dotted Swiss folder.  The bear was stamped on a scrap of dp and cut out.  I used a Copic marker to color his nose, tie, and bottom of his feet.  He is popped up with dimensional tape.  Some flowers from Gina K Designs were colored with a blue Copic marker, popped up with a small piece of dimensional tape, then a small pearl added to the center.  Small pearls were also added to the frame.   The greeting is from the Oh Baby stamp set but was part of a longer verse.  I used a black marker to  color  just the word I wanted and punched it out with a window punch.

Hope you enjoyed this card.  Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see my card for the TMITA/PCC challenge.  I am going to give you a chance to receive that card!  See details tomorrow.
