Meljen's Designs Challenge #55

Hello friends.  It's Thursday so that means we have a new challenge over at the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.  This week our challenge is to make a masculine card.



I used Army Bear on my card.  Isn't this little bear adorable?  I colored him with copics and colored pencils.  I've had these alphabet brads forever and finally found the perfect use for them.  I then added some twine and a button.  I really struggle with cards for men.  It's so hard for me not to be able to embellish with flowers and glitter, but I have to say I like the way this card turned out.



Here's the latest Meljen's Designs release.  You can find these adorable bears and all the other fabulous Meljen's Designs images at Whimsy Stamps.  Please stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to see the fantastic cards the DT created with these little male bears.  I hope you can play along in our challenge this week.


Thank you so much for stopping by.

I would like to enter my card in these challenges:

Little Claire's Challenge 5  -  Animals

Stamp:  Meljen's Designs - Army Bear
Paper:  Creative Imaginations; Bazzill
Other:  Copics, Caran d'Ache and Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, alphabet brads, twine, button, nestabilities
