PDCC and Lil' Inker Designs!

Today I'm here with a card using the cute cute Ccoa Bear image from Lil' Inker Designs and 2 cute ink!  This uses the beautiful holiday challenge over at The Play Date Cafe and it's sponsored by none other than Lil' Inker Designs!  Here is the color story from PDCC..........




Last time you saw this image, Cocoa Bear was totally colored in with Copics.   This time I've combined Copics with paper piecing!  I've forgotten how much I love to do this!  Using the fabulous papers from the Season's Greetings collection by Echo Park, they were the PERFECT match for this color story!



The side border is the Wonky Scallop Border by MFT.  The die cut that Cocoa Bear is sitting on is actually the Mat Stack 3 die cut once and then place back in the die the other way to "cut off" the circular top.  Makes a fun ticket type shape!  Cocoa Bear is also sitting on a grey stamped shadow stamp from the set Warm Happiness by PTI to "ground" him.



I think my favorite parts of this card are the sentiment and that I popped up Cocoa Bear's head for dimension!  I used a sentiment from the Cocoa Bear set but didn't want the whole thing so I just stamped and cut out the words at whatever angles looked good.  Well, I'm off now to do some more wrapping and hopefully some baking for the holiday.  One more day off before I have to work Christmas Eve.  Thanks for stopping by!
