DT Post for Creative Inspirations: Anything goes with the option of ribbons

Good morning all! I hope you are feeling well and happy and enjoyed the sunshine yesterday! We had a gorgeous day and it looks like we might have another today! Over at Creative Inspiration there's a new challenge starting. This week's challenge theme is Anything Goes + An Option of Ribbons!

This week's prize is form MEL JENS DESIGNS who are giving 1 Winner

Our next prize is of course from our monthly sponsor J&C CREATIONS who are giving a second Winner a £10 GIFT VOUCHER!

So its all to play for! This is what I did:

What a cute little bear - he's called Scuba Bear- and you can get him here. My image was coloured with promarkers and I distressed around the edges with DI. I cut the image using a spellbinders die and added the pearls on all of the air bubbles in the design. This topper was then mounted on card and I punched holes in the side to thread some ribbon. I used the same ribbon at the bottom of the card and added the sentiment. Finally I added the whole thing to a card blank! Quite CAS I think!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

PFPpromarkerchallenge: Name that tune - An Octopusses garden (the beatles) or 'under the sea' from the little mermaid.
Cupcakecupcakecraftchallenges: CAS no flowers
PMSpapermakeupstamps: All tied up
AGOACpinkgemchallengeblog: Male birthday

Hope you have a great day whatever it is that you're doing - I've got to prepare for Rainbows after my run - tonight we'll be making swaps for our daycamp in July - I'll take a picture if they're any good!!!! Other than that its cleaning all the way I'm afraid! Yawn!!!! Still it has to be done!
