Just Cute Bears ,,,, Swirls and Bling :-)

This is my 4th and final card as a GD on the Just Cute bears Challenge ,,,, my next one will be a DT card instead !! Woo Hoo !!,,, I have been asked to stay on the team !! Thanks girls :-) I am looking forward to being a fully fledged girlie :-)

From this week the challenge is going to be fortnightly ,, so you have until the 10th October to make your entries ,, loads of time eh !! :-)

The theme for the next fortnight is

SWIRLS AND BLING :-)


We are sponsored by the lovely Paula from Pollycraft and one lucky winner will have the chance of winning 10 digi images !! :-)



For my card I used my lovely new LOTV stamp ,, I coloured the image with copics and added ultra fine glitter and stickles for sparkle. The papers are My Minds Eye and SU Artichoke cardstock. I used my lovely new EK Success swirl punch and a Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes die cut. The flower was made using a Tim Holts Tattered Floral die. I used watercolour paper and distress inks for this, you can see a tutorial on how I made this on Christina's blog.
I love the Diamond Dust she recommends,,, brilliant for snow in shaker cards too :-)



Challenges:

LOTV ,,,,, Untraditional Christmas, is this OK ,, not sure if its untraditional enough ,, sorry if its wrong :-/

Crafty Emma Store ,,,,, Animal Antics

One Stop Crafts ,,,, Snowflakes in September ,, (there are snowflakes on the DP and the image is covered in snow) :-)

Totally Gorjuss ,,,, Christmas
