Just Cute Bears

This week over at Just Cute Bears the challenge is "Punch It".  This is my first project as a member of their Design Team.  For my card, I chose Butterfly Bear from Stampavie.

I colored my sweet little bear and butterfly with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I added some glaze to his eyes and nose and sprinkled Glamour Dust on the butterfly.  I used my EK Success paw print punch for my border.  I love my paw print punch.  My friend Dolly is the one who showed me this punch when it came into our LSS (Simply Scrapbooks) and of course I had to buy it.  Dolly shows me lots of things that I end up buying.  I think Dolly is a bad influence on me, don't you?  (You know I'm kidding, Dolly!)  I used Martha Stewart punches for my butterfly and leaves.  My flowers are by Prima and my sentiment is by Hero Arts.

For more inspiration, check out the fantastic cards the other DT members have created over at the Just Cute Bears Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!
