Shabby Barry Bear:

Good morning all.

This week StampFairy is sponsoring Love to Create's anything goes with a sentiment challenge.

I used sweet Barry and paper pieced him on a fun polka dot moon.  And again, I am trying my hand at shabby.  It's way more difficult than you think (at least it is for me!).

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Celebrate It ribbon,  Recollections pearls, Studio G glitter glue, burlap, Wilton paper doily.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Making Memories edge ripper, Die-namics Fancy Flourish diecut.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Come and Get It - tic tac toe (ribbon red paper piercing/glitter free ribbon), The Ribbon Reel - inspiration photo + burlap + ribbon, My Time To Craft - wings, Sugar Creek Hollow - shabby layers,

That's it for me - have a wonderful Monday and thanks for the visit.  I will be away from the city off and on this week so if you need anything just email me :)
