Blue and Green

For our colour challenge at "Less is More this week", we have chosen blue and green.
This week has been a busy one but I just about managed to get a few cards made.
Here is a baby card using some elephants from a Martha Stewart punch. I haven't used a punch for a long time but this one is a really sweet little image. I cut a panel for the front of the card cutting out the three squares and then embossing it with a Stampin' Up folder.  This one always reminds me of a baby blanket.  The welcome is from Paper Smooches and is triple layered.
This delicate wreath is from Penny Black, stamped in Green and clear embossed, with the flowers coloured with a Promarker. A few iridescent, mixed sequins were randomly added around the circle. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Here's a little Hobby Art stamp coloured with alcohol pens and twinkled with Glamour Dust.The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers. This is for Just Us Girls ~Merry~ challenge.
I have had quite a few commission cards to do this week and also with various trips out looking for Christmas presents, the time has just flown. However I did have time to make a card for my grandson. Apparently he chose a tree decoration from the Christmas market in Bath of a polar bear with antlers, so I thought I'd make a card for him of something similar!
I just bought this Hobby Art stamp of a strolling bear and looked for some antlers on the web. Having found these, I reduced the size, and printed them and then stamped the bear so that he was 'wearing' them. I think he looks quite cool. The name is from Memory Box letters and the Ho Ho Ho is from a pack of Dovecrafts wooden sentiments.
The background EF is from Sheena Douglass and the snowflakes from All Occasion Dies.
It's for the SNOWFLAKES challenge at CASual Fridays

  9. I love the elephants, and the wreath, and ooh the bear and, ooh the other bear! The Hobby Art bear has been cleverly designed hasn't he, so you can cut around his paw and he can hold a balloon or flowers or something.
