Pink sleeping bear and charm.

So another week which means another challenge at http://sketchyfriday.blogspot.com/. This challenge was really fun and as soon as I looked at it I knew what I wanted to make. Seems like lots of my friends are having little babies. I have 3 friends who just had a little one.
This one I really love the cute bear and the moon. It is just so sweet. I actually did a "different" thing vs just coloring the image. I actually paper pierced the bear/moon. I used some yellow paper, pink, brown. Then I also used white card stock. I cut the pieces added to the white card stock.

The green paper base is SEI , the rest of the paper is from doodlebug. I figured since it was a little girl for this card - then it would be perfect. It is 6x6 card. I love the stripped bubble gum pink paper and the pretty little paper on the back.
I used my Martha Stewart punches to make a cute little border on a stripe of paper. I then glued the paper pieced moon/bear down onto the white, and used my new spellbinder dies to cut a cute little label. I adhered that to the bigger square paper - which is 4x4 popped it up to give it some dimension.
The sentiment is from My Creative Time --- All star baby. For this card -I wanted to use the "Congrats on your little miracle because this friend really has had a hard time getting pregnant and little Mariah is truly a miracle.
I couldn't stop with just the card so I also made a cute little charm for her charm bracelet. My friend totally loves charms. I figured since this was an "easier" cut image I would print them on the Shrinky Dink paper and color it.  I imported the digi to 3" and then it shrinks to this size here. I then sealed it with Ultra Thick Embossing enamel.
Hope you enjoy and don't forgot to join http://sketchyfriday.blogspot.com/ for some fun.
Have a great day and
Happy Scrappin'
