I do like simple. This Forever Friends stamp i bought a few years back has saved me alot of time, made wonderful cards and ideal for every occassion, perfect for tiny cards as this one is a scrappling. Stamped onto it first, run it throught the Cuttlebug with my embossing folder and attached my watercoloured topper bear, balloon has been 3D'd, faux stitching with fine liner pen and silver pearls placed. Challenges entered are Just Cute Bears 'Embossing', The Secret Crafter #99 Clean & Simple, The Crafty Pad 'Simple Pearls', Moving Along with the Times #62 In Stitches and Crafty Creations #83 'White plus 1 other colour' ( not including the bear colour I went with the blue balloon) hope it will do, until next time, bye!

PERFECT for clean and simple Ruby. The textured area is a very clever way of adding interest but keeping it uncluttered. LOVE it.
