Forever Friends Fortnightly Challenge - Monday 8 April 2013

Today sees the start of a fortnightly challenge over at the Forever Friends and Co Challenge Blog.  
Donna from Bearly Mine Designs is sponsoring this challenge and therefore members of the Bearly Mine Design Team were asked if they wanted to make a card for the challenge.
Well what is the challenge you may ask?  The challenge is to "use your dies and/or punches". 
For my card I have used a gorgeous Forever Friends stamp that I have got.  To add some dimension to the little bear I printed onto the back of some ribbed watercolour card so that when I coloured the image in with Promarkers the ribbing showed through.
For my card I have used Bearly Mine Designs papers from three different sets:  Christmas Traditions (I love Christmas papers but love the flexibility that a good number in this set can be used all year round), Gingham and Petunia Parade.  I have done some matting and layering including using some basic shape Spellbinders I won in some candy.  I have finished the card off with a Marianne Designs clock die which I have inked to match the colour scheme, lots of flowers cut out of the backing papers with a punch, Craftwork Cards sentiment, brads, ribbon bow and some pearls.

Make sure you pop on over to the Forever Friends Challenge Blog to have a look at the wonderful creations of the Design Team.
