Beary Happy Big Day

Hello Blog Friends, the card I am sharing with you today is created from recycled elements - I love to reuse cards, ribbons or anything else I come across - there are many things lying around home that we can use - we just have to look at things with a creative eye!
I have hand cut/fussy cut the bear image from an older card and popped it up onto Standard Circles LG  Spellbinders® Nestabilities® followed by Stately Circles Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Elements.  My Dies have been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.    I have also used  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension ,and E-Z Runner on this card.
The sentiment has been stamped using Imagine Crafts®/ Tsukineko® Memento Dye Ink in Bamboo Leaves and cut/embossed using Standard Circles LG  Spellbinders® Nestabilities®
The embossing has been created using the Lovely Lattice Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ folder.  The Ribbon is from May Arts and the Mulberry Rose and bling are from Want2Scrap.
