Double Challenge!

One of my goals this summer is to do more challenges. So for this creation, I combined two of them. Jen Del Muro always has fantastic sketches over on her blog, but during the school year, I can't always find the time to participate. I made sure I had time this week and that was my starting off point for this card. You can find her sketch challenge for this week here. My other challenge was from Kim over at My Favorite Things. We needed to use cork or felt. I have been wanting to try cork for some time now, so that is what I went with. I actually bought a four foot roll of it at Home Depot. It is Con-Tact Brand drawer liner and the bonus is that it has a self-adhesive backing!! It worked great with my MFT Die-namics and my 'Bug, so I'm thrilled! My other details include my wonderful image from My Favorite Things - Fred Bear and the Butterfly. He's colored up with Copic Markers (E30, E31, E33, G21, G24, R27, R29, Y21, and Y32). The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket and it's layered onto a piece of Riding Hood Red. I added some matching May Arts ribbon, a few buttons from stash, and some Star Dust Stickles to finish this one off. Hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
