Bobbing On By

Hello fellow crafters,

I said yesterday that the weather conditions are bad...well today they have been horrendous,
with 36C and winds of up to 100kph. Throughout NSW, there are more than 50 major 
bushfires, with many out of control. Several major highways are blocked both ways. I think
we are in for a really frightening summer!

Tonight (or this morning for many of you) we have a new challenge for you at
Crafty Little Fairies, and our theme this week is:-


We would like to thank this week's lovely generous sponsor:-

I have used LOTV's cute Bobbing On By.
I have always loved the colours of autumn, so creating this card was very enjoyable.

A closer look at the sweet little bear. He is coloured with Promarkers.

This the first time I have used this lovely corner die. I coated the 2 corner
die-cuts, the tree die-cut and the punched leaves with Versamark, then
sprinkled them with several different coloured embossing powders, before 
setting them with my heat tool.

The inside of my card co-ordinates with the front. 
I did not emboss this corner die-cut.
