Thank You Bear


The challenge over at Meljens is to Tie a Ribbon.  I hardly ever remember to add a ribbon to my cards; by the time I get done with all the layers and embellishments I have run out of room.  So I enjoyed making this cute Thank You easel card.  This adorable image was a freebie from Meljens Designs that I had never colored.  So I thought it was time to use him.  I printed the image onto Cryogen paper with my laser printer then die cut it out with my Cheery Lynn Designs French Flair Doily Stacker.  To create the card base I used my Scalloped French Flair Stacker and the coordinating Silver French Flair for the DP panels.

 
 I added a  Ribbon Eyelet Border with piercing to the card base through which I wove my ribbon and then added a bow.  The final step was to add four butterflies from the new Mini Dimensional Butterflies die set from Cheery Lynn Designs.  These are so cute and dainty!  

This is my 999th post here on Blogger and I will be giving away 3 huge blog candy bundles starting tomorrow as a thank you for all my supporters.  So be sure to come back and check it out.
