So Lucky To Have a Friend Like You

Today I'm sharing a St. Patrick's Day card I made this weekend for a sketch challenge.

For this challenge I selected Sweet 'n Sassy's Lucky Bear digital package.  Here's my completed card and then a little about creating it.

Here's the sketch we were given for the challenge.

I started by printing the bear about 2 1/2" tall, the sentiment, and several random digital clover leaves to use as the circle embellishments.  I used my Copic markers for all the coloring and the selections are listed below for your reference. 

The completed bear is hand cut leaving a little white space so he would not fade into the background.  I used a miscellaneous stitched circle die to cut the clover. 

Next I selected a light yellow 5 1/2" card base and added the green patterned paper background.  Then I secured the dark green banner tag and spaced the clover circles down the right edge.  After trimming the sentiment, I added it in the bottom right corner.  Lastly, time for the lucky bear.  Before securing him to the card base, I added 3 foam squares under his hat, head and raised arm.  Then I added the glue adhesive to his body and legs and placed him on the banner.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
