Another Purple Bear

Here's another card using the new Meadow Cottage Bears by Christine Haworth. Last week I shared a card in purples with this adorable little guy.  I liked him so much that I did a variation in purple and sage green with this Happy Birthday bear set for today's post.

Once again, this is a simple and classic symmetrical layout, using a large central image and a greeting underneath.

First I stamped the image in black, and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I did pick out my designer background paper first, so that I could be sure to color the bows to match.  The main image was matted on to a scalloped purple card stock.  I layered two coordinating purple print papers, a stripe and a paisley,  onto a folded white card base. Don't you love the way a stripe adds structure to a coordinating paisley or floral? Lastly, I added the greeting, a pearl and a little ribbon on the right of the greeting.

Hope you're inspired to do a little creating of your own this week,  Have a wonderful summer Sunday!
