As soon as I got done with this card it made me laugh. One because it is so silly and the other it really came together darn well. First I started with the sketch from Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge Sketch. The top of the sketch reminded me of clouds. That made me pull out my SU set called Under the Stars. I knew I wanted to do something with the bear and his mosquito spray. I needed some earth tone colors so I went with the ColurQ Challenge #31.
I was going to put a ribbon on it but I wanted to make this card a boy. The critters and scene has an outdoors theme which goes with two challenges: Cards for Men Challenge #10 & Crafty Calendar Challenge #8. I made it a scene for the TSG54 Challenge. I might as well push the envelope and also add it to Pile It On Challenge #18 - Cute N Cuddly. Mr. Bear's smile does creep me out a little but if I had mosquitoes that big after me I might look the same. I did flock his tummy to give him some sweetness. I thought of the saying as soon as I stepped back and looked at the card and printed it on the computer. Cut the strip with Fiskars decorative scissors.
So what do you think? Pretty silly huh?
Here is the close up of the lower half. You get a better view of his tummy and flocking. You know were the flocking came from? It was a $1.00 find at Michaels. The pack had 4 little tubs of different shads of brown. I bought all the different packs they had. As you can see I put a little glitter on the wings just to spruce it up.
