Baby Beatrice Bear:

My shoulders are moving right along - never 100% but I will take what I can get!!  I figure I've taken a long enough crafting break and my hands and mind are just itching to get back in and dig around in all the fun crafting goodies I received from Christmas.

 Don't forget we have another week at All That Scraps.  This week is Anything Goes.  But please do remember, your project must include an image sold at the All That Scraps Store.

Ribbon makes me happy.  I have so much of it in my stash that I am happy to be using it again :)  I used this sweet newbie Baby Bear Beatrice.  Awwhhhhh - isn't she totally precious?!

Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs stamp, Craftsmart Black ink, MME papers, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Celebrate It ribbon, Recollections pearls, Wilton doily.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, Circle Nestie, sewing machine.


I made this card for the following challenges:  Anyone for Anya - sketch, Songbird Challenge - new baby, Kaboodle Doodles and Papertake Weekly - ribbon, Top Tip Tuesday - layers.

TOP TIP TIPPY:  When looking at the image you are going to use, see how you can use it in different ways.  My little one is snuggly and sleeping, so I knew I wanted her to be along the edge of something.  I used the edge of the circle as her little bed and instead of using just plain paper, use something with interest.  I choose some paper that looked like she would be sleeping in a garden.
Also, add interest with ribbon.  The sketch above is the perfect way to use ribbon, instead of paper strips, add a big bow!!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and I will see you all again tomorrow.  Cheers!

What a sweet card, I love how you used patterned paper for the background behind the image, and then how you added the image to the edge. Thanks for joining the Luscious Layers Challenge at Top Tip Tuesday.
