This is a card I made for the weekly color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com. If you've never played this challenge, you should give it a try. Its a lot of fun. Every tuesday they give you 3 Stampin Up! colors and challenge you to make a card with them. You can also use neutral colors (white, black, etc) on your card and different colors on your stamped image. The colors this week are 'Riding Hood Red', 'Basic Grey', and 'Always Artichoke'. Well I saw these colors and immediately thought of 'nature', 'earth tones', and 'masculine', so I made a masculine birthday card. I used my 'Nestabilities' to cut out the squares for the main image. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the 'Always Artichoke' panel. The name of the embossing folder is "Houndstooth". Isn't it a great texture? I used my computer to create the first part of the sentiment, the word 'Grrreat!' is a stamp in the same kit as the bear. Then I just added ribbon and mounted my sentiment panel up on dimensionals. The image is from the new Stampin Up! set 'Under the Stars'. Isn't that bear just adorable? Everytime I see him I'm not sure if he wants to hug me or eat me! LOL!
