My First Bear

Needed to make my Sister in Law a birthday card but also wanted to enter the Prima challenge on Creative Craft World.  This is the first challenge I have entered other than on MSE so I hope I do it right.  2 of the lovely ladies on MSE supplied me with Prima flowers, and it was a good job I had spare as I changed my mind twice.  I would also like to enter this for the current MSE challenge 3b's.  The colours aren't ones I would normally use but as I needed to use my Promarkers to colour the flowers I had limited choice.  I also would normally have used Happy Birthday but my peel offs won't fit within the smaller oval punch.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:-

MSE Padster's 3b's Bear, bow, box, blooms and border


Materials used:

Card Stock - Anita
Backing Paper - DCWV Glitter Sweet Stack
Bear - Coloured with Promarkers and Stickles (Stamped by Flourgirl)
Flowers- Prima coloured again with Promarkers to match picture (Supplied by Skiergirl & Choccy)
Sentiment - Anita and layered using my new Stampin Up punches
Misc - Grosgrain ribbon from my new Poppicraft stash and card candy colured with Promarker and stickles


  1. That looks great love the way you have layered 3 different flowers together and the border punch you have used looks fab. Thanks for joining us at Creative Craft World.
