Beary Happy Bloom and Balloons


Today I am making this post brief as I have a severe infection (cellulitis) on the back of one hand and I am supposed to be keeping it elevated.... can't do that when I am typing :-)

This is to introduce the (Recipe) Challenge #24 over at the CCC Digi Challenge, and we are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear this challenge, 

and I have used their image Beary Happy Bloom

The recipe is to use 1 ribbon, two papers and three gems or brads.

I mounted my image, coloured with Prisma Color pencils, on two die cuts from the Spellbinders Mavellous Squares .

I am linking this to:
1 Digi image, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments and a touch of glitter (in the droplet)
I was inspired by the shapes and colours in the wallpaper

    P.S. With all that fabulous ink embossing you always do, I wanted to let you know about this month's challenge at V's Sweet Ideas which is "Emboss It". Like I've told you, I'm not so good at the kind of embossing you do, so I cheated and did pressure embossing (with an embossing folder) on my card. But you are welcome to enter some of your fabulous stamped embossed cards in our challenge this month. I think you can enter three (3) times per month, and I'd LOVE to see your fabulous embossing skills shared with us there. I hope you will play along. Here's the link so you can link up when you make one of your amazing embossed cards:
