Please Bear with me!

Excuse the bad pun, but this is going to be the first of three posts today using a gorgeous little digi stamp set from the Clipart Fairy. The set comes with the little bear digi stamp and three hats, a baby hat, a birthday hat and a Christmas hat all ready for you to colour to match your card.

My first card today will be using the Birthday hat and the Interactive Circle Girl Kit.

I coloured the bear digitally in photoshop, and used one of the papers from the set to paper piece her hat. Again in photoshop I changed the circle frame to an oval and printed it out several times. I cut the centre section from two of the ovals and added the bear to one of them. I then made them up into an easel card. The bear was printed a couple of times and I layered up her legs and hat. The large flower is part of the design on one of the backing papers in the set, I cut out three different sizes then shaped and layered it up, and although it doesn't show very well in the photos, there is lots of glamour dust on this card, a single flatback pearl in the centre of the flower is the only embellishment I have added.

Birthday hat. 

Next time I will be using the baby hat.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Simon says stamps - anything goes

Ellephantastic - Anything but square or rectangle
