Tuesday Throwdown #10

Happy Tuesday! It's hard to believe that this is already the 10th challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!

The challenge this week is "Christmas in July." I bought this adorable bear stamp and haven't used it, so this was the perfect opportunity to ink it up.

I tried two new techniques on this card.   This is my first easel card.  I also tried making a folded paper frame for the first time.  I got both of the tutorials from Splitcoast Stampers.

Stamp - Imaginisce Snag Em Stamp (Bear), Inkadinkado sentiment (inside) and holly stamp, Studio G sentiment stamp (fromt)
Paper - K&Co
Misc - Adhesive pearls and rhinestones, Distress Inks, Bic Mark it Markers, MS Loops Punch Around the Page, Creative Memories Corner Rounder
