Sweet Dreams

     My card today is doing double duty;  I'm posting it as my DT card for the new monthly challenges at both 2 Crafty Critter Crazies (theme: Anything Goes with a Featured Critter) and SheepSki Designs (theme: Flower Power.) We are fortunate enough to have SheepSki Designs as our sponsor for the month of August and, even though I'm on a leave of absence for another month at SheepSki, I worked ahead to have this card done for 2 CCC and the post pre-scheduled while I'm gone so why not use it for the August challenge at SheepSki also?

     The image is called "Sleep Tight"and I absolutely love the little bear, hugging and protecting his sleepy mistress.


     I colored with my ProMarkers, die cut with a stitched die from Lawn Fawn, embossed with my Swiss Dot folder and highlighted the stitches on the dark brown square because the stitching just didn't show up well on something that dark.

     I printed background dp onto vellum and it was chosen mostly because of the color combo.  I used the largest die in the Lawn Fawn set to cut it.  I found that gorgeous, scrunched ribbon in my stash, wrapped it around the card front and tied it into a bow.   Finally, I added the white rose (which promptly fell off as I was photographing it! - but I re-attached it just below the sentiment.)

     Challenges:
Cards in Envy
Colour Crazy
Crafting from the Heart
Dream Valley
Hiding in My Craft Room
Jo's Scrap Shack
Outlawz Greetings

     Happy Stamping and come play with us in the challenges.  NanaConnie
