Good morning! I hope your weekend has gotten off to a good start; mine has. I took some time to get crafty this morning; we also have family here from out of state and have a family graduation to attend, so it will be a fun day!
I have joined the Forever Friends Monthly Challenge Team. Actually I am jumping in a bit late with this challenge, as it began Thursday. I like playing along with the challenges because I get to include an animal on my cards! Our challenge this month is "Birthday".
I chose this adorable FF bear to work with; I went with plain cardstock and vellum to keep the focus on the cute image. The vellum actually has a nice texture, but it's hard to see in the photo. I used my corner rounder to add a bit of interest, added a piece of faux ribbon (I used the MFT Grosgrain Texture Board Die-namics and just ran a strip of CS through my Cuttlebug...super easy, plus you can have "ribbon" in any width or color!), and some rhinestones.
