Friday Sketchers Challenge # 72

Good morning everyone! I made this card to fit in with the Friday Sketchers challenge. I had a forever friends kit which I had used once a while ago and then didn't use again. When I saw the design sketch I just knew those were the papers that I was going to use!
I decoupaged up a forever friends bear and then, rather than matting and layering, I added a gold peel off round the edge, to give the impression of it being matted and layered. 
Rather than following the design sketch exactly, I offset the circle, rectangle and backing paper just to give it a little more interest.
As the image has a mainly white background, the photo hasn't come out too well,I took it with a flash and without, but the one without was so dark that I will have to put this one on.
Its terrible weather here today so I have bad light. Normally I try to take a picture by the window but today there wasn't a lot of light coming through (too dull a day, or maybe I need to clean my windows? lol) On taking the picture, I realised that the red circle with the white ribbon through the middle looked like a no entry road sign, I hope this isn't an omen that I won't get entry into the challenge!
OK, back to business, here is my card! I hope you like it! 
Thank you for viewing! xx


  1. Lovely card Karen, Forever Friends bears are always a popular choice in my house. Do you remember Vicki's old bedroom full of them, that was first time they were released lol.
