B is for ...

I made this card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge 'B is for ...' and I have chosen Bear, Balloons, Baby, Boy, Blue and Bronze!  I am also entering Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Patchwork Bunch of Balloons' Mini Masterpiece & 'General Sentiments'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Squares Large', 'Lacy Squares' & 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Colouring: Promarker
Card: Bronze mirri
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Bear Necessities'

I trimmed the blue paper, layered it onto bronze mirri and attached it to the card. The precoloured image was already die cut, but I used the embossing mat to emboss the edges before attaching it to a die cut and embossed Lacy Square.  The image was then attached to the centre of the card.  To finish I cut around the edge of the Baby Boy sentiment, attached it to a scalloped embossed circle before attaching it to the card with foam tape.

I adore this sweet LOTV bear image over the die cut lacy square in that pretty bronze mirri card Kath, and the blue and white dotted bp goes beautifully and the round sentiment over the bronze scalloped mat is the perfect finishing touch. A delightful card. x
