A Dry Emboss Challenge Card- Joy

Good Morning, as many know I belong to a group of embossers (The Bossy Group) and each month we have a host who chooses a template and sends embossed pieces of same to members to create their own card. This month's challenge was to use L9507- Victorian bear in a holiday themed card. Since I had this template and never played with it I got to work to see what I could come up with. The paper is all from LI some of which has been discontinued. I used an ornament from a Cuttlebug folder to create the necklace. The buttons are just from my mass misc. assortment I have. After completing the first card I had an idea for another card which did not work out as planned. On the second card I attempted to do a mock cross stitch using a black marker. I think it would have come out better had I done the body in several paper pieced patterns like I originally planned but aced for time reasons.

Good and bad here are my two takes using the one template.

Have a BEARY nice day and thanks for stopping by.

Cute cards! I especially like the first one with the little girl. Love the buttons that coordinate so nicely with your colors!

Love both versions, Nettie. You never cease to amaze me with your layering! Great job; great colors; very nice design on both.
