Bear Swap

This is one of the cards (out of six) that I ended up making for the bear swap I'm in on Splitcoast Stampers. This card is fairly simple because what I didn't realize before I ordered two of these Gruffies stamps is that the images are so large, it doesn't leave much room on your card for anything else. I colored the image with my Copic markers and then added some Dazzling Diamonds on the lilacs, I also used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder on the Orchid Opulence piece. The Thinking of you is from the Warmest Regards SU stamp set and is matted in Always Artichoke, the same color of the card base and mat for the image. I hope the other swappers like them!

Thanks for dropping in!
