Just Cute Bears #26 - Christmas in July

Sunday, 18 July 2010
Good morning everyone, I hope you're having a lovely weekend!

This week over at Just Cute Bears we're trying to help give you a kick start on your Christmas cards with our Christmas in July Challenge! I've done a few cards but nowhere near the amount that I need!

I've got a few images coloured up and thought this cute Lili of the Valley bear would be perfect for my card. He's been coloured with copics and cute out with rectangle and scalloped rectangle nesties. The base CS is Real Red from SU! I've embossed a panel of white card with my snowflakes CB folder and then sprayed it with some gold Spray & Sparkle. I've another layer of Real Red CS that has been punched with my fiskars snowflake punch and then layered with some DP from DCWV. The sentiment is computer generated. I've added some glossy accents to the lil star.
A close up of the bear and sentiment. I think you can just catch some shine from the star.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday #121 - Get a Head Start
ABC Christmas Challenge - O is for Ornaments

Please check out the rest of my teamies amazing creations. I hope that you will join us.

    This is lovely Sarah. I love the combo of red and white and the image is so cute. I love these LOTV bears. In fact I'm scared to go and look at the new ones over at LOTV.
