Beary Special

Well, I should've been working one of the 3 reports that are due next week, but there's a party at the rec center across the street and I can't concentrate. So I decided to make a card!!! YEAH! (I LOVE work avoidance!). Anyway, I got this super cute free image from participating in last week's Delight Inspiration challenge at Designed 2 Delight. So here's what I came up with for this super cute image! I'm getting back into coloring with my colored pencils and OMS, but gotta figure out how to keep the printer ink from smearing (sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't, and yes, I heat set it too...think I just need to be patient and let it sit for a bit before coloring...any other ideas are appreciated!). So here's the other challenges for this one:
1. ABC challenge - U is for unused stash: I've had the BG Origins paper for awhile and I think I've only used it once before...maybe not at all...
2. A Spoon Full of Sugar - 3 Designer Papers and 3 buttons
3. BasicGrey Challenges - Punch It + one BG item
4. Cupcake Craft Challenges - buttons
5. Scrap Creations – Going Grey Challenge - use an animal + BG paper
6. The Crafty Pad - Tear it up: It's hard to tell but I tore the top of the paper stripes
7. The Pink Elephant - Yellow, Designer paper, and buttons
8. The Pixie Cottage - sketch and extra of adding vintage/distressed touches

Here's a picture of how I very simply finished the inside:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!!
Aloha,
