GDT for Just Cute Bears

I am doing a GDT for Just Cute Bears Challenge blog for the month of May (perfect with all the gorgeous Lili of the Valley Bears I have still to get inky).

The challenge this week is buttons and bows – automatically I think of pink, frilly and girly so how on earth I came up with the exact opposite is beyond me lol.

I have made this card for our Ben and Amy to give to their daddy for fathers day, Rich is always doing something to the house so this image is just perfect for him.

There’s only one button but I guess that qualifies.  The Busy Bear image from Lili of the Valley has been coloured with distress inks and Twinkling H2O’s.  The paper is Basic Grey (can’t remember which pad I used) and the punched border is done with a Martha Stewart Around the Page punch.

Love the sentiment, it is from Clever Cut.  I have inked the edges of the image, sentiment and paper with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I followed a sketch from a challenge blog and can I heck as like remember which one it was.  If anyone knows please let me know so I can credit the blog.

Thanks for stopping by,
