My second card is for a new Challenge Blog for Crafters Companion, and this card has been made for Challenge No. 3 - a Sketch designed by Jane, with an added extra of Gems/Sparkle. I have used one of the Popcorn the Bear Collection, and this adorable little one is called Thinking of You, and the whole image has been coloured with Sakura Gel Pens, which gives it a lovely sparkle even though you cannot seen if in the image. That is one of the main reasons I love using Sakura Gel Pens, because of their fabulous shimmer! The image has been trimmed down and layered on green and yellow card. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called June Bug, and to finish the card off, a stamped sentiment, and some gems for added interest. Many thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a great day! Happy Crafting X

Hi Lou,
What a lovely card. I really should have treated myself to the Popcorn set. He is sooooo cute.

I was going to do the CC challenge too but what with working full time - might have to miss this one. Still we'll see.

I like the backing you have used to , such delicate colours.

Love Dawn
