Muse Card Challenge #229

Hi there ~ I haven't played along with Muse in a few weeks and when I saw Tracey's adorable inspiration card, I couldn't resist! Here is her card:


And, my take on her card:



I focused on Tracey's layout and blue background, although instead of ink blending I thought it would be fun to use this whimsical stencil. I also added the oval shadow die cut for the bear to stand on and some glossy accents on the balloons :)

Ingredients:
MFT: Bold Paisley Stencil, Polar Bear Pals, Happy Hippos (balloons), Up in the Air (sentiment), Essential Speech Bubble
Copic Markers, Lucy's Cards (sequins)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

I love that polar bear, reminds me of the Christmas time Coca Cola bear ads on tv. This is a darling card for the muse challenge.

My favorite bear, Barb!!! Though I think I only have the original set, he is still just as cute and fresh as the day they released! LOve the glossy balloons, and you are so right about that stenciling - he would make that big splash, now wouldn't he?!

So cute, and love your background.
I thought for ages of what to use to 'ground' my image and it never occurred to me to use an oval die like that. Duh!
That's filed away for future use! ;-)

Totally cute interpretation of Tracey's Muse card; love your choice of bear to "replace" the hippo; both with balloons.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my Otter card, Barb. I've popped over to take a look at your creations and have had a lovely time browsing through them. These ones in particular caught my eye as I love these polar bears a lot. Your cards are lovely. Hugs, Annette xxx
