Bear Snuggles

     Gosh the weeks are just flying by!  It's time for a new challenge at There She Goes and this time one of our newbies is our hosting Trendsetter.  The very talented Carole has chosen a color challenge for us that is very fitting considering St. Patrick's Day is next Sunday.
     Here's some inspiration for you.

     Green is the color of the week so let us see your green projects.  Remember, you don't have to use a TSG image to play along.
     For my card I've used another image and sentiment from the adorable new "The Beary Best" set.  Torico's little bears are just precious.  I've colored her with Copics and did some layering with green papers and ribbon.  The card base and image frame are a dark green although they look black in the photo.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Glitter 'n Sparkle--St. Patrick's or use some green
Great Impressions--going green
Hybrid Chick Card Caravan--fur or feathers
Dilly Beans--going green
QKR Stampede--show us some green/St. Patrick's
Simply Create Too--St. Patrick's or use mostly green
Wags 'n Whiskers--go green
Inkspirational--color palette
Twisted Tuesday--spring into green

     Hope you have a fabulous week!

Supplies:  Papers--My Mind's Eye, Bazzill, Georgia Pacific, Copic XPress-it Blending card; Stamps--There She Goes Clear Stamps "The Beary Best"; Ink--Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black; Tools--Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder, Nestsabilities Large Labels, Memory Box Classic Scallop edge die, Stampin' Up Corner Ticket punch, Bow Easy; Miscellaneous--Celebrate It ribbon

The embossed background adds so much texture without distracting us from that adorable stamped image. Love the ticket corners and the layered scallop border. The colour palette for colouring the bears is much depth. Good stuff, Tracy!

Hello dear Tracy,

I love your card a lot.
How you did the background with that embossing.
The sentiment and the image is so cute together.
You did a awesome job coloring with copies.

But the scalloped border and that ribbon is terrific.
I love the ribbon you have chosen.
And the three layers of scallop borders is just perfect.

It looks verry simple but so interesting.

Have a great day!
Soon Han
