I've had this sweet Cub Cuddles set from Mama Elephant for a while now, but this is the very first time I've inked it up. I paired it with the current sketch at Match the Sketch for this perfect for Father's Day card.
I made a background for the image panel from a navy cardstock panel topped with a piece of green gingham patterned paper from my scrap pile. After stretching a strip of kraft twill across the top of the panel, I placed the image panel on top. A golden yellow half circle, tucked beneath the left edge of the image panel, added a final contrasting pop of color. The finished panel was adhered to a blue card base to match the image panel's background.
