*~* It's pure Bear-a-dise! *~*





Happy 4th of July!

I hope today brings you a day of relaxation and fun and all things wonderful! We are heading to the beach in a little bit but it's looking quite gloomy and very overcast! (tons of rain yesterday - crossing my fingers for our beach & BBQ plans!

I'm also super happy that Germany is advancing to the semi-finals in the World Cup! Woohoo!
Today's card is Deedee's *What's Shakin'* set and it's just as cute as can be ~ and my DT sample for the Embellishment challenge going on over at the CDAC! We'd love to see you stop by and show us you card using jewels! You can enter your card HERE! You can enter your card from now until July 14th - make sure to use the tag cdace1, deedee and it gets even better! Deedee has provided you with a freebie you can use - an adorable Flamingo!

For my card, I used the adorable bear image, colored in prismacolor markers and added some bling to her flower, grass skirt and a petal/stem to a flower that was on the paper. This paper is soooooo delicious! It's shimmery and soft, subtle colors of grey, baby blue and a brighter terra cotta color - a sweet birthday gift from my incredible friend Judy! (muah, thanks, sweetie!) I matched it with some Gina K cardstock I bought awhile back (Sweet Mango - don't you just love the name!) and some Baja Breeze from SU and tada! I'm also excited to have been asked to join the Alphabet Challenge Blog and this week you'll see that the letter of the week is "J" for jewels! So many places to play along and have a fun week :)
Blessings and stay safe!
