I am so glad when I sit down to make a card and having decided on an image, an idea comes right to me when it relates to mixing up sets!
In this case, for this week’s sketch challenge 241, I knew I wanted to use my favorite bear from the Whimsical Wishes set Beary Special and could if I turned the sketch. I wanted to use a new accessory for him that I haven’t used, and looked at the Boys will be Boys set which was still out in my stamp area-a tie for the boy bear! I just love that Nancy illustrated 3 different kinds of ties in that image, I used the outline one so that I could paper-piece it to look like a classic plaid tie. To make it more proportionate for the bear, all I had to do was shorten it a little and angle the top to match his chin line-so easy! The sentiment is from Beary Special Accessories. The papers I used on the card are Basic Grey Archaic and the ribbons from my stash (except the middle one is from Taylored Expressions.)
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
