I have always loved the look of cards made using Nesties but wasn't sure how to make them.  One of the girls Deirdre on the Cardz n Scrapz Forum always does gorgeous ones and she kindly posted a link to a tutorial for them and boy are they fun.....prepare to see ALOT more of these!!!!

I decided to enter this weeks challenge over on Paper Play Challenges Blog This weeks challenge is Just Because!!  I liked this idea as it made a change from making Birthday cards LOL!!!  I decided to try out the tutorial on Nesties cards using my Labels 8 nesties (love this set!!) and am using one of my new Lili of The Valley stamps called Teddy with a Flower.  I opted for a simple, bright, clean card.  So stamped and coloured my image with Promarkers, cut him out using my nesties. I inked the edges using Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and the mounted him on plain yellow cardstock that I had embossed with my swiss dots cuttlebug folder.  I added some gems, some glossy accents to give the flower a bit of definition and chose the Best Wishes sentiment.

thanks for looking :o)
