I entered these challenges as I thought the image I had of a bear would fit into this particular sketch.
The challenges I've entered this card into are as follows:
1) Just Cute Bears Challenge # 23 - Open theme
2) Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge # 75 - Follow the sketch (picture below)
I didn't have any square cards and so I thought I'd take the chance and put this onto a rectangular card instead. I know I could of cut it down, but I liked the look of it on a longer card.
I used card from my cardstock and gems from my gem stash. The stamped image I coloured with promarkers and then I cut it out with a large circular punch (ok I know it gets rid of some of the lovely image but I got the main elements of the stamp in it). Due to me not having a slightly larger or smaller circular punch and not being very good at cutting out freehand ones, I wasnt able to make a border around the bear, and I realise it doesnt look very much like I've cut out the circular bear image but I have.
I have a new border punch, and so I used this to partially border the backing card, for a little more decoration.
I hope you like my card.
