Ethereal Forest Designs Monday

Good Morning! I hope you all had a great weekend! If you didn't join us yesterday for the blog hop, there is still time to do the hop and enter to win $10 in free images!!

Before I share my card I have to say... HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDAN! My baby turns 15 today. I can hardly believe it - it seems like it was just yesterday that we brought that sweet baby boy into this world and here he is... 15... taller than me (not hard to do)... and almost a man and certainly more mature than a lot of men I know. LOL

For my card share today, I have a sweet one to show you. I loosely based this card on the sketch from Just Us Girls. I omitted a solid line and scallops on the side because I absolutely adored this paper that I wanted it to shine through. Hopefully, it still counts.

Images: Huggie Bears and Bears Sentiments Ethereal Forest Designs
Card Stock: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Close to Cocoa & Really Rust
Paper: Recollections Garage Sale: Farm House
Tools: Nesties Scallop, 5/8" Circle Punch
Inks/Colors: Memento Tuxedo Black, Prismacolor Pencils & OMS

I hope you like my card and definitely get in on the blog hop. Thanks for stopping by!

Ah Melissa this is super adorable - the bears are cute as can be. Nicely done. Sketches are usually for inspiration so modifications are ok unless we say otherwise. If we can't even recognize the sketch then it went to far astray *grin*
Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. We appreciate your participation and support. :-) Hope to see you again next week.

Ooooh Melissa, I love these bears - they are so cute. Your papers are just perfect for them too. It's hard to believe when your baby becomes 15 and soon a man...yikes! I hope he had a very happy birthday! ;D
