Shy Bears sending you a Smile!

I am so excited to be showing you my first card made with one of the brand new digital Shy Bears from Squigglefly!!! This one is called Snail Mail Bear, isn't he adorable!


I used the colors from the current SNR Squigglefly color challenge, I thought they were perfect for this card! The sketch is from Carol's Sketch Fun, the blue panel started out as a square then turned to a circle...hope that's ok Carol!!
My design is pretty clean & simple, huh? I find it to be a little more 'mail/post-friendly'!
The challenges I played along with...
Squigglefly SNR color challenge~kraft, ruby red, bayou blue & white.
Carol's Sketch Fun~the sketch.
