Fab'n'Funky Challenges #146 - Let's See Those Bears

Hi Lovelies,

Firstly I must apologise for the lateness of this post.  I can't blame Blogger this time though.  My internet at home is completely knackered so I'm having to travel to my parents house to use theirs this week.  Fingers crossed it is sorted for our next challenge.

I hope you've all had a great week.  Thank you again to those who entered our last challenge.  The winners are up on the blog now so check them out at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

Our wonderful host this week is Wendy and she has chosen a fantastic theme to show off our furry friends...

Let's See Those Bears!

So all you have to do is include a bear on your project and then link it up.  Simples!  Our sponsor is the brilliant Doodle Pantry and the DT were lucky enough to receive some images to use.  They were all so gorgeous, I really had trouble choosing!

Eventually I settled on this pre-coloured cutie.  I love the bright green, blue and yellow accents.  Doodle Pantry were also kind enough to send us a couple of matching papers and I have used the checked one on my card. 

I started by embossing the card blank with a dotty embossing folder run through my Cuttlebug.  I added washi tape in three colours to co-ordinate.  This is the first time I've used washi tape and I think it's fab.  The colours were such a great match too. 

I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty Six for my layers and then added a couple of layered flowers.  The centre gem came free with a magazine last month.  I may add a sentiment later but at the moment I've kept it sentiment-free.

I hope you can join us for some beary fun this week.  Can't wait to check out your great projects.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
