CC208 and Mojo Monday 76 Challenge... :)

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is going well and getting some paper crafting time in. I had good intentions of posting this card early this morning, but computer problems wouldn't allow me. Now were back up and going again!! Yeah... :)

Today's card was inspired by Color Challenge CC208 (Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Pink Passion) and MoJo Mondays 76 sketch. I realized I had some DP that would work and the card came together from that point. I pulled out my miscellaneous stamp collection and came across this "CUTE" bear with a fun sentiment (The Angel Company). I stamped the bear image with Craft Chocolate Chip and clear embossed. Then water colored using SU! Markers and Aqua Painter. I added Crystal Effect to the flowers! I also added paper piercing, flat silver pearls, CB embossing, and pink rhinestones... for a twist I added ONE clear rhinestone just before the sentiment. (I'll be honest I ran out of pink!)

Click on the close up photo to see the embossing, water coloring, etc. For the Chocolate Chip bow I used Lisa's tutorial at The Craft's Moew. She has a lovely step-by-step tutorial on how to make one of these gems!! This is my first try and not to bad I might say... :) (Thanks Lisa!!)

Have a super day ladies (gent's too!) I have been stamping since last night and have more to share. Thanks for the kind comments and visits... I LOVE IT! Enjoy... :)

What a cutie - and am loving that colour scheme! I really love pink and green together. The clear rhinestone is a really nice touch too - it highlights the sentiment...even if you hadn't meant it be there - LOL.
Have a super day too and I look forward to seeing what else you have to share...

This is just the cutest darn card! Perfection all the way. (Love that bow... hehe.) I am so glad you are getting some quality stamp time in, my friend. To me, that IS stopping and smelling the flowers.

Love and hugs,

I do love your little bear and the bow is so cute! I have yet to do one like this. I do recall a recent article in Stampin' Success that feature this bow. I've been wanting to use it since, and haven't!
