Finally I sat down to work on a challenge card – I had intended to do it earlier in the week but the week is getting away from me.  I haven’t used my Build-A-Bear set recently so I decided to pull that out and make a card that fit two different challenges again.  First is the sketch challenge from the Card Positioning Blog and second the Late Night Stampers group challenge – which was to create a Valentine (I forgot about the masculine twist – so I’ll try to make a boy card to match it a little bit later).

The sketch looks like this

And here is my card – Bella my bear is showcasing it for you!

Stampin’ Up! Supplies used:

  • Real Red card stock and ink and marker
  • Chocolate Chip card stock and ink
  • Very Vanilla card stock
  • Close to Cocoa ink
  • Creamy Carmel ink
  • Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Beary Best Friends stamp set
  • Beary Nice Wishes stamp set
  • I {Heart} Hearts stamp set
