It's a boy! Bear

Challenges:
sketch-Peachy Keen
recycled-PollyCraft
boys will be boys-Pixie Dust
stencils-The Spotlight Challenge
vintage look-Phindys
distressed-Catch the Bug
distressing-Dream Valley



My recycled element is the paper the bear is stamped on, it was wrapped around a gift I got in the mail. I laid an oval stencil on it and used vintage photo distressing ink around the edges, then stamped the bear in the same ink. Then I tore out the shape and used the ink on the edges. The dark brown base is from Club Scrap and the lighter brown is from DCWV Once upon a time series. I added a ribbon and I love that button, been waiting to find the right project to use it. I stamped Little Wonder at the bottom and Its a boy on the inside, they are from August Leaves, baby series. The stamp at the top is another from August Leaves. Most stamps I have ever used on a card.
