Beary Best Card Sketch Challenge

This card was a happy accident. I had measured some pieces for Mystery Monday Stamping with Sharon Armstrong on YouTube, but it turned out the clues she had given us from yesterday's email were supposed to be for next week, so she showed us the card we were meant to make tonight and then ended the episode. I decided to use some of the pieces I had already pre-cut, and then I stamped the bear, the campfire, and the sentiment from a retired Close to My Heart stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with a Spellbinders die and then fussy cut the bear and campfire. I just love the camping pattern paper I recently found, and it seems perfect for the Time Out challenge this time that has a camping photo as the inspiration. I embossed the blue background paper using a Craftwell embossing folder.

  5. The woodgrain embossed background is a perfect background for your bear camper and looks like all the tools he needs are in your pattern paper. Cute and fun card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.
