CR84FN11, Inkspirations #53, & Verve Diva Dare


Hi folks!  I'm sneaking in a post tonight before I head off to bed.  I managed to squeeze 3 challenges into this card!  The colors are for Mona's CR84FN11 challenge, the sketch is from Inkspirations, and the theme of the card is for Verve's new Diva Dare challenge, which is "Baby Love".





On Day 2 of the Diva Dare challenge, Jackie Pedro shared a card with a cute little window and a bear inside, so that's what I thought of when I saw this sketch.  I used a Spellbinders square die to cut an opening in Rustic Cream cardstock and popped it up with foam adhesive.  The cardstock behind it is stamped with Background Basics:  Tin Types, and I used a few scallops left over from PTI's Victorian Lace border die to resemble curtains.

The cute little bear was stamped with PTI's Baby Button Bits onto Fine Linen felt and cut out.  I stitched a hand-cut heart on his belly.  The red border is also cut with the Victorian Lace border die, and if you look closely you may be able to see the Music Score impression on the kraft background.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy, Rustic Cream), Bazzill (kraft)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Baby Button Bits, Background Basics:  Tin Types)
Ink:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Victorian Lace border die, Music Score impression plate), Spellbinders (square die)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (felt), DMC floss

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight!
