Pink Noses

It's cold here, really really cold. I think the boys and I must have permanently pink noses.

 Anyhow, I created another card! Probably because it is too cold to play outside and well, cleaning is not really any fun. I was inspired by the sketch at MFT Card Challenge Wednesday Sketch 267. I used the large sitting bear die from Birthday Bears as the tag, and one of the baby bears as the square.

I started by spraying some light blue ink onto a white card panel, to provide a base for the bears. The bears and banner were cut, and then all edges inked, along with a green mat. I colored the noses of each bear slightly and then inked up a sentiment.

I'm also playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Spritz and Spray.
