Gift Bear

This morning, I worked on another card that ultimately works for 3 challenges. I started out intending to create a card for the Sketch Saturday challenge (#59). When I saw the new challenge over at Stamp Something – Pink, Green and Yellow Somethings, I wasn’t sure if it was one that I would participate in or not. Once I started looking in my stash of papers, I made up my mind that I would use that palette for this card. The last challenge is the Penny Black Saturday Challenge – Swirls. I am not much of a swirls kind of girl, but I had just gotten some swirly stickers the other night at the crop, so I decided to use them. Here is the result:


To be perfectly honest, it is not one of my favorite cards that I have ever made, but I certainly don’t hate it. The palette was a bit outside my comfort zone and as I stated above, I’m not really a swirly girl. What do you think?

  3. Thank you everyone for the kind words. The card took me out of my comfort zone which is probably why I didn’t fall in love with it immediately.

    Jessica, the flowers came from a Prima Got Flowers jar that I purchased at Michaels.
