Paint Yourself A Different Color

Happy Tuesday friends.  I have a sweet little bear to show you today.

This little cutie is Bearicelli and you can find him and lots of other adorable images over at Di's Digi Downloads.  I colored this little budding artist with copics and colored pencils.  I added Glossy Accents to the nose, paintbrush handles, and the paint blobs (yes, I'm sure that's the term all professional artists use, lol) on the palette.  I stitched all my papers and added some ribbon and a bow. 

As soon as I saw Bearicelli I knew exactly which sentiment I wanted to use with him.  I've had these cute little Inkadinkado  sentiments for quite a while and I knew this sentiment would go perfectly with this bear.  Wouldn't this be the perfect card to cheer up a friend who's feeling a little down?  You may want to hand-deliver this card though because it's very heavy lol! 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day.
