Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Think Pink and Add a Die Cut

I am the hostess this week for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge, and the theme this week is, to Think Pink and use a Die Cut. I had a ball creating my card with this darling Autumn Bear:

I am not really a pink kinda gal, so I had to add some orange with it LOL.  The Autumn Bear was colored with copic markers and for once I didn't sponge or airbrush around her because I knew I was going to add a lot of detail in the dp and embellishments and didn't want to lose the image in it all :)

The Die cuts are the corners which were cut with my cricut expression and the roses which were also cut with the expession.  The flowers used as the rose bases were MS punches and I thought they added a nice base to the petal and also added another die cut... there is method in my madness.....

The ribbon is a double sided ribon in orange and pink and I used a tutorial( The tutorial is a video tutorial on the right sidebar of her blog.) by my friend and Boss at Just Inklined, Jak Heath,  for a double loop ribbon tied on your fingers....easy enough I could do it LOL. You laugh...for 4 years I tied knots for bows on my cards...go back and look.... I kid you knot ...did you get it...okay back to the card.

Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for your viewing pleasure.  I am sure it will be outstanding and to Die for...Pun intended,...Okay, I am done...

Sassy Cheryl has really been creating the cutest images the past couple of weeks so be sure to stop by the store and grab a couple or three or four and play along with us in the challenge. 

Have a wonderful creative day.
