Nine & Ten: McMahon Five Bear

It has been a long but productive day. Here are cards #9 and #10. They use the same Girly Bear image from McMahon Five Designs, but one is treated elegantly and the other is more "fun".
Girly Bear all dressed in pink/white. Two shades of pink cardstock criss cross under the encircled image. The DP is from HOTP. The paper, corner gold Dazzles and gold pearls are all available from Paper Wishes. The gauzy ribbon and the acrylic sticker "Treasure" were in my stash.
In a lighter treatment of Girly Bear, she is dressed in blue, still (obviously) looking very nice. However I chose a brighter, floral paper and a pink checkered paper with "Life Happens" stamped in the squares. Four blue paper roses embellish the right edge of the card.

I didn't see any challenges that these would fit with (tomorrow there probably will be) but I wanted to share with my followers anyways. Some of you are veterans of papercrafting and others are newbies. I want to show the Newbies that the same image can be used in multiple ways. Both of these cards will be going in the box for OWH. Some military person will have a little girl with a birthday or a need for a note from Daddy or Mommy and will love getting a Girly Bear card.

Remember our military personnel this 4th of July Weekend. They aren't celebrating with fireworks, they are watching out for dangerous explosions. If you see a veteran or active military person - tell them Thank You. They can't hear it often enough.
