Sassy Cheryl's Challenge, It's Tuesday!!!

This week Judy is our Hostess with the Mostess...for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.  Judy chose a sketch challenge for us and I really liked this sketch, different than anything I have done before (or ever?)  What do you think?
I fell in love with the latest freebie that Sassy Cheryl's offered last week when the PCP group reached 500 groupies, I mean members :).  Isn't this just the cutest bear.  If you aren't a member of Sassy Cheryl's group you can't get this free image, so get over there and join if you haven't already. 
Each week Sassy Cheryl's offers her newest images on Challenge Day ( ummmm that would be Tuesday)and they are always soo great and this week's images are no exception.
I reverted back to some of my favorite techniques that I haven't used in a while, which would be the foliage stamped to appear that the bear is in a tree enclosed or garden area.  I think it adds a nice earthy feel. 
The coloring was done with copic markers and the edges were sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink. 
Judy, thanks for the awesome sketch.  You all are going to love how easy this is, so be sure to play along this week.  We love to have you.  Be sure to check out the awesome DT members blogs to see details of their cards.
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Coloring
