Baby Bear immediately caught my eye in the annual catalogue and I knew that it would be a nice addition to my stash, for baby cards and because teddies make everyone go, "Awww!" To ink it up,I paired the Global Design Project challenge #41 (color combo) with the Retro Sketch #219. Because the colour combo called for Sweet Sugarplum colour, I wanted to use the Painter's Palette DSP stack, but the neutral in those papers is Very Vanilla, so I had to slightly change the colour combo. Considering I only changed the neutral, I'm hoping I can be forgiven?
The cute narrow washi tape is from the accessory kit of one of the new Project Life kits released in the catalogue as well. The larger washi tape came from another Project Life accessory kit (last Christmas' Hello December, I think?). My card background was embossed using the Lucky Stars embossing folder and I highlighted the stars with the Clear Wink of Stella brush.
I allowed myself to use the Very Vanilla Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon since it is still available for a mere $4 (great deal!) in Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack section. I used a Very Vanilla Designer button from the Neutrals pack (now retired) on top. They're really similar to the Classic Designer Buttons, which we still carry, in case you're looking for an equivalent. Or if you're like me, you still have a bunch to get through anyway. wink
