Let Sleeping Bears Lie

 Hi I'm back again with my second post for today - not done that in a while :-)
This tome it's to share a card I have made for my brother who has recently become a Grandad - I know - another new baby in our family - this is number 4!!! 
As far as I know there are no more due now!!!
I took my inspiration for this card from this Month's Crafty Calendar challenge - 'Let Sleeping Bears Lie' and knew I had this image that would fit the bill nicely. They are also having a DT call so thought I might try my luck :-)
I also decided to use the fab sketch at Willow Sketchie - designed by my lovely blogging buddy Claire

So here's my take on it:

 and here's what I used:
Image - Meljen Designs - Sleepytime Bear - Coloured with PM's
DP's - Pink Petticoat - Stripes and Dots
Rainbow Shimmer Mirri Card
 Spellbinders - Labels 20 to make the frame around the image
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts & Retro Flower Punch
Adhesive Gem Stomes from stash

Here's a close up of the image: see the gorgeous rainbow of colours from the shimmer card
And here when the light really catches it:
Challenges I would like to enter:
Crafty Calendar - Let Sleeping Bears Lie and DT call
Willow Sketchie - Sketch
The Crazy Challenge - Spots and/or Stripes
Alphabet Challenge - P for Pretty Pastels
Cardmad Fairy's Digi Days Challenge - Use a digi and add flowers
Crafty Catz - Monochromatic
Aud Sentiments - Card/Sentiment for a Girl

Thanks for popping by (again).
Enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

Stunning that rainbow mirra card and such a wonderful layout. Thanks for joining us at Cardmadfairy Digi Days. Not sure if you are able to change it but you have linked to a Christmas Card not to this card in Mr Linky.

Merry said...

Oh just me again...Funny thing is this card shows in our Mr Linky list but when I visit I come to the Hedgehog Christmas card. Oh well...I found it.
