TCP Tuesday 223-Handle with Care

It’s my turn to host the TCP Tuesday challenge and I picked the colors for week's challenge with hot summer days in mind.   We’re playing with a bold and bright mix of colors combination—rose, sunshine, and teal. Feeling the heat, right?

I used the colors along with this week's Paper Craft Planet sketch challenge for this sweet card.  The heart hugging bear from the Bear Hugs set is my focal image.  The bear's colored with Copic markers and cut out, then attached to a circular panel with foam tape.  The panel is set over a pair of rose and white gingham panels that are matted on teal cardstock and criss-crossed on a sunny yellow panel.

To add a little interest to the otherwise plain panel, I machine stitched around the edges.  The set's "handle with care" sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the panel in teal ink.  A rose button, tied with a little pink baker's twine accents the sweet image.

For all the details on this week’s challenge and how you can play along to be eligible to win this week’s Cat Cash prize, stop by Alma’s blog or the TCP forum on SCS.

Bear Hugs stamp set, Neenah white cardstock, Divine Twine pink baker's twine (The Cat's Pajamas); Regal Rose, Taken with Teal, and So Saffron cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Head over Heels Tiny Tablet (Lily Bee Design); circle dies (Spellbinders); pink button (Michaels); sewing machine; foam tape
