CAS-ual Fridays - Krafts-men

Today's card is for this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, which is 'Krafts-men' - a masuline project using Kraft card.  Here's my very simple effort...


I thought it was about time I inked up this cute Elzybells bear stamp - I must have had it about 2yrs and I've never got round to using it!  The sentiment is from Elzybells too... such a shame they closed.

I've stamped the bear in Memento 'rich cocoa' onto Kraft card and again onto a scrap of gingham paper so I could paper piece his 'parachute'.  Coloured him using koh-i-noor pencils.  The blue card is actually a bit of cardboard packaging I found that happened to be the right colour lol :o)

I'm also entering my card for the 'anything goes' challenge at Oldie But a Goodie and the 'free & easy' challenge at Allsorts.
