Beary in love

For today, I have a card to share with you! These last few days (or weeks???) I had lost my card mojo completely.

So yesterday I thought "ok, that's it, today you are going to make a card". I looked at my favourite challenge blogs, I got so much amazing inspiration... still nothing. I would get up. Sit down. Get up again. I had a number of ideas, but I just couldn't put them together.

And suddenly that was it! As if something unlocked my mind, everything started coming together, and finally I had a complete idea. Here's what came up with:

My inspiration have been the following challenges:

- For the colour combo: Lily Pad Cards - Virginia's View #2 with the following inspirational photo:

Aren't those colours gorgeous? I definitely wanted to make something with them!

- For the technique I used: Lawnscaping Challenge #8 - Distress Mania:

Distress Inks are my favourite inks because, as I have said before, they are so versatile and you can use them for so many different techniques. For this card, I used them to watercolour the image and the letters - my favourite technique that substitutes markers... :S

- And finally, for the pun "Very -> Beary": CAS-ual Fridays #41:

I hope you like it! (And that my card mojo is still here when I come back from my business trip this week...)
