Bright and Cheery challenge at Catch the Bug blog

Today I want to show you a card I made as GDT for Catch the Bug Challenge this week. The theme is BRIGHT AND CHEERY. And this is my card:

I colored Edward Elephant - Flower with alcohol based markers (Kuretake) and cut it with an oval scallop die (Sizzix), then I distressed the borders with a green ink pad.

I choose green and yellow combo as base for my project. I made my own background with acuarelle paints... I love this technique. I just discovered it a few weeks ago and I am preparing a few more backgrounds :)

The sentiments (Birthday Wishes) is from a clear stamp set, I used a glue pad for embossing and golden powder to do it. I am learning to use the embossing powders with stamps. I used green and yellow ribbon, made a double bow to embellish the card.

I hope you like my card and come to play with us at Catch the Bug this week.
