Music Bear

Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week the theme is - BLUE AND SILVER.

My decoupage image is from The Best of La Pashe Decoupage CD ROM and the papers are Bearly Mine Designs - Christmas Wishes.  This is going to be my youngest sons Christmas card - he loves music and bears - I would normally put his name on the front but it just didn't look right no matter where I put it, so I will just write on the inside.

I have die cut the stars from corrugated card - I just love the texture and look you get from this, the little star buttons have been hiding in my stash for ages.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and layout as the front:


Image:  The Best of La Pashe Decoupage CD ROM
Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs - Christmas Wishes
Card Stock:  Create and Craft
Tools:  EK Success - Postage Stamp Punch, X-cut - star die
Spellbinders - Standard Square (inside card)
Embellishments:  buttons and twine from stash

Our Sponsor this week is
