One Lucky Bear!

Another fun digi from There's Magic In the Air, appropriately name: Lucky Bear. The challenge this week is to make the bear distressed (well, at least the card) so I roughed up the edges of the mats and sponged Brillance Metallic Gold on after the roughing up. It's hard to tell, but I placed the bear 'behind the glass', well, actually a transparency with the balloon string emerging between the 2 frames. It was very difficult to show the depth and layers of the card in a photo.

I also followed a fun challenge at Challenge Up Your Life, to follow the sketch and use 2 colors: green and yellow. I'm finding I really like the diagonal sketches. The Patty's Day DP I used was bought at a local craft store as was the green glitter paper.
And of course I finished the inside! The dots are the reverse side of the shamrock side. Other challenges I am entering this card in are:
3. My Time to Craft, in the frame, yes, the bear has been framed!
4. Lexi's Creations, spotted or striped (check out the inside)
5. Paper Sundaes, to distress (my 2nd entry)
6. Saturday Spotlight, to mess around (distressed)
7. Your Next Stamp, to use spring colors (St. Pat's is the beginning of spring here in mid-Mo, that's the day you should plant your potatoes in the garden!)

 Till the next card...SAM
