This week’s challenge at Pike’s Playground (Doodle Dragon Studios) was to do a clean and simple card using a bear image. They call the challenge “The ‘bear’ minimum.” Since they have so many cute bear images to choose from, I had a very difficult time choosing. I’ve seen a lot of fall challenges and blogs lately, so I decided to go with a cute bear and pumpkin image that came in the 2011 August Membership set at Doodle Dragon Studios.

I used the sentiment “Happy Fall Y’all!” I love the fall! It means sweaters but no coats, carnivals with candy apples, and the return of College Football! I can’t wait!!! But after this one, maybe I will think summer for just a little while longer…

I recently learned to do easel cards so decided to do another one for this challenge (this time square) and I must say, I think I love this style card a LOT!!

I tried to keep it simple but I did give it some color…Hope it still counts?

So as this is a simple card the supply list is simple too:

  1. Stamp: AugArt22B Bear with Pumpkin by Doodle Dragon
  2. Paper: assorted cardstock (not sure what brands, they were in a random pile)
  3. Ink: Copic Markers
  4. Other Supplies:
    • “Textile” embossing folder by Cuttlebug
    • Large Oval Punch by Stampin’ Up
    • Scallop Oval Punch by Stampin’Up
    • Orange Organza 3/8″ ribbon (small holes punched with Crop a Dile)
    • Thin brown cording by Bead Landing

Short and sweet! Thanks for stopping by! ‘Til next time!!
