MMSC25 Snuggly Teddy Bear Card

Good Morning Everyone~  Welcome to my blog today.  I am still not quite up to par yet, so my posting may be at the bare minimum for information, but I want to share with you my MMSC25 sample for this week.

Unfortunately, I did not receive images from our sponsor Shawne Arnold who designs for Clear Dollar Stamps to use for this week's sketch, so I used a digi image from McMahon Five Designs for this card.  Isn't it just the cutest bear?  She is a very talented digi designer! Two of my scalloped background circles are made of foam which I thought added to the whimsy and fun of this image.   Lots of fun things on this card to see.  So sweet and feminine too with, of course the touch of lace, gems and sparkle which I am so well known for.

The inside of this card is sweet, but very simple with just a few flowers to continue with the feminine theme on the front of the card. 

Shawne~I will have to use your images for another sketch coming up.  I had really looked forward to using it.

I hope you enjoyed my sample card for the week and that you will be inspired in some way to create a fun card of your own this week. 

Congratulations to our MMM winner this week:

#33 Cabio

Additional Congratulations go out to the winners of the MMR for the week:

Thanks for dropping by for a peek, and please leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my take on the sketch.  For more MMSC updates and info, please visit the MMSC Blog.

Take care, and stay healthy.

A very feminine card indeed. Many layers, ribbon, lace, flowers and pretty colors and image. Embossing, MS edge punch, did I miss anything? Very impressive, can I take her home? TFS my friend~

You have so many details on your card, I could spend hours just gazing upon it. The colors are very striking and the view is dazzling. Thanks for keeping me so inspired.

Carolyn, what a fun idea to use foam for the scalloped circles. Your card has so many wonderful details. I clicked the picture to get a closer look and WOW! I love the lacy blue circle and lace trim, border punches and texture everywhere. And this little bear is so sweet the way you've colored her! Just beautiful! :)

Carolyn what a cool idea to use the foam. I'm sure it adds even more dimension that regular paper! You are always coming up with the greatest ideas! I so love how you colored the digi! I recognize that gorgeous purple rose too! :) Beautiful card! Thank you for using my image! :)
