Love this Bear

I think that these Pollycraft bear images are such cuties, I find myself using them time and again. Here it is for the challenges from Just Cute Bears, where I used the sketch, together with the chosen colours from Stempeltraume, where the selection was green + 2 other colours, in this case pink and brown.
I used a few new things in this one... my new border embossing folder from the Christmas selection from Papermania and a new large script one from Cuttlebug.
I also used the method of making a straight punched border into a curved one, as in my tutorial here. This time I used a Stampin' Up border punch, but the method was exactly the same.
It was particularly useful for this card, as the sketch demanded a large circle and I had no edging large enough for it. With this method, no shape would be too large, you could just keep adding more lengths of border. Useful huh?
The DP is a freebie download from Fred She Said. There are various shades of several colours... really useful.
