Stamp Fairy Indendence Bear


My card is for the newest challenge that starts today at the Stamp Fairy challenge blog, our theme this week is to use three embellishments. 

For my card I chose to use one of Gerda's Independence Bears.  Would you believe she told me she knew I was going to find the Independence Bears and want to use them?  She knows me too well already!  I colored this cute image with Copic markers thinking I wanted a "blue jean" bear.  Copic markers B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, R39, R27, R24, Y18, Y15, C2, C1, C0, C00. 

My layout is kind of out of necessity because I wanted to incorporate red, white & blue and use that last sheet of Stampin' Up! Summer Sun.  The frame I made for around my Independence Bear is a digital image from Whimsy Stamps that I recolored in my Publisher program and printed, the sentiment is also a digital by Create With TLC that I recolored to match the navy blue.  The frame is cut out using Spellbinders Labels 3 and circle die.  For the three embellishments I had stars in mind.  I cut three red stars with my Spellbinders die and added buttons to them to make my own embellishments.

I hope you'll join us at the Stamp Fairy challenge blog to see all the cards our design team has made and enter into our latest challenge!
