I Made 'Him' a 'Her'!

Hope you all had a good weekend. I had a really good one - lunch with my lovely Mum and a spot of shopping on Saturday, and a really lazy crafty day on Sunday. The only downside is that I got a tiny cold. It is so pathetic though, I'm not really noticing it. Actually, it's kinda what I think man-flu would be like ;o)

So without further ado, I present to you a card I made on Sunday using the cutey CC Design bear. I'm loving the fact that all the CC Designs stamps have now been released in Digi form... can't wait til payday on Friday!

I made the bulk of the card by layering up DCWV card stock with pink and green Basic Grey papers (Sultry and Offbeat I think but I could be wrong!) I coloured my CC bear with ProMarkers and Copics and highlighted with white gel pen. To make my 'he' a 'she', I added a little hibiscus flower from the CC scenery set - how cute does she look?! My bear was then plopped onto white card using lots of 3D pads. I tied everything together with pink and green Poppicrafts ribbon and some sparkly bling gems.

By the way, check out my scalloped edge! I don't yet have a punch and I didn't cut it by hand... I used my Nesties! Apologies if you have all already figured out how to do this but I am super excited by this discovery as it means I don't have to buy a bulky punch - woohoo! Check out this blog for all the deets.
