My Tri/Quad Shutter Card also Challenge #19 - Just Cute Bears

Well I have just finished off yesterdays challenge to myself. I managed to make the card, use some of my new Wild Rose papers adn use one of my Bugaboo digi stamps. I don't think it is too bad for a first attempt at one of these types of cards. I have made it into a Thank You card.

The good news it fits in with this week's Challenge #19 - Thank You Card over on Just Cute Bears

Items Used:

Bugaboo Bee Bear with Flower
Wild Rose Milton Papers
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Denim (used to stamp sentiment)
Tim Holtz - Broken China (used for sky background)

Tim Holtz - Old Paper (used on edges of image and fold on the card)
Flower Soft Fine Sage - Used on the grass area to add depth

In other news I have just had a Crop a Dile arrive and I got it for the tiny sum (including postage from eBay) £7.25 so a very happy bunny at the moment. It looks like no cardmaking today for me as dad is home and using the bench so I think I might do a bit more to a horse cross stitch or sit down and read through some card making mags. Im trying to avoid watching telly as I never get anything done or end up arguing with it. (Ive been stuck indoors far too long)
