I Love You Beary Much!

Today is my day to showcase one of Elisabeth Bell's digi stamps over at The Digi Bells DT where I am honored to be a guest design team member. For this card I chose Pati's Kisses - isn't she just toooooo sweeeet?!? She was beary fun to color, too.
I was inspired to color her up in copic Rs, Es and Ws with a monochromatic "peachy" feel. I love that color its so warm and soft. I also used some of my most favorite ribbon from my hoarded stash (I am in a panic, however, as I only have one yard left and don't remember where I got it :/).
And wanted her hair to have a "platinum" look. I even pulled out my chalks again and chalked every edge of this card. I also decided that I only wanted diecuts/ribbon/lace as my embellies - even though I had a whole slew of "peachy" stuffy on my work surface - keeping it a bit more simple made me happy :)
The DP paper was purchased from Oozak, Prima songbird collection and Dovecraft Princess Fairytale. Used my Cuttlebug to cut all the hearts, swirls and ovals.
Even finished up the inside with more coordinating DP. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. This one goes out to a special dear girlfriend!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
Have a Beary Special Week.
Love,

The first thing that struck me about your card was the color. I LOVE orange, and it's just not used much, except as accents. It gives your card a very warm glowy feeling! Thank you for playing with us at CCCC!
