Just Cute Bears - Here Comes Summer

Our theme for you this week at the Just Cute Bears Challenge is:

'Here Comes Summer'

For my card, I've used an adorable Lili of the Valley bear called 'Deckchair Dreaming'...well...isn't that how most of us would hope to spend the summer? The paper is from the 'Cupcakes' pad by BasicGrey...and, although I don't like icecream, I'm assured it's a most enjoyable treat on a hot summer's day! lol I used my 'Forest Branches' Cuttlebug folder on Core'dinations 'Whitewash' card, then sanded over the raised areas to reveal the blue core before distressing all the edges. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz adage ticket, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, and the letters were cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.

 

I followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for my card, and am also entering it into the Crafty Catz 'Embossing' and Totally Papercrafts 'Animal Magic' challenges.
Make sure you stop by and check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the Just Cute Bears design team.
