Marrakech Bear

Isnt it funny how the right challenge can get your mojo going?! I sat down twice yesterday to make a card using the sketch and it just never came together. After I got home today I took a peek at todays WT challenge. The challenge for today is variegated color. I knew I had to use this ribbon I came across the other day while putting all my loose ribbon on my new ribbon ring. I *heart* my ribbon ring btw!! After looking at the ribbon I remembered the colors in it matched the marrakech dp I pulled out to use since I havent used one sheet of it. I used I heart papers new stamp set Into the forest. I love this little bear! He reminds me of Yogi!LOL! I colored him using copics and added some background color using my primsacolor pencils and gamsol. I also stamped a flower image from the set in his hand. Oh...and as I was trying to tie the bow I remembered why I have so much of this ribbon!LOL! Its not easy to tie!
