MFTeaser Day 2 Two New MFT Characters!

Welcome to Day 2 of the MFTeasers! Kim has out done herself this month and is introducing two new characters, Fred Bear and Millie the Mouse! Be sure to check Kim's blog at 11:00 am EST for the list of designers sharing projects today.

Today I chose to work with Fred Bear Graduates. I actually have a number of graduations coming up. I made this card for my niece Katie, who is graduating from high school in June. Her school colors included purple so I added some purple to his cap and gown!

Fred is colored with copics and cut out with nestibilities. I added rhinestones the cap and gown, black gel pen to his nose and ears, and I paper pieced the diploma and sponged on a little distress ink.

I sewed around the edges, added a border punch, and gingham ribbon. The sentiment is included in the set. A crocheted flowers finishes off my card.

Here is a look at the inside. I stamped, colored, and cut out the bear's face.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Easter to all of you!!! Be sure to stop by tomorrow. I have a darling new Pure Innocence stamp to share!
