SC212 - Congratulations

This card was created for the current Sketch Challenge on SCS (SC212). You can find the original sketch here.

I started with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base of Bazzill Pistachio paper. Next, I lined the inside with a 4" x 4 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla paper, and a 1" x 4" strip of paisley patterned paper. I stamped my bear image onto WCP in Stazon Timber Brown ink and colored it in with Kiwi Kiss ink. While the bear was drying, I started cutting out my various layers: khaki solid (4" x 5 1/4"), paisley print (3 3/4" x 5"), lime solid (3 1/4" x 4 1/4"), polka dot print (3" x 4"), khaki solid (1 1/2" x 4"), strip print (1 1/4" x 3 3/4").

I then tied three knots in the aqua satin ribbon, and cut the end of my stripe paper and my small khaki solid. I adhered the two pieces of paper together, and then added the ribbon before assembling the card front.

Next, I cut out the bear, attached a small knot as a neck-tie, used my exacto knife around his arm and tucked my sentiment flag underneath. To finish off the card, I added three light brown rhinestones (which look a little dark in the photo).
