Colour Dare 255 - Bear Birthday Wishes

We are into colour combinations with the Jack paper pack as a basis at Colour Dare for the month of August. Challenge 255 invites you (if you wish) to use some of the papers from the Jack paper pack (like Ruby, Slate, Black and White Daisy) but to add Willow and Sapphire - and Silver is optional.

Since I have a masculine birthday coming up, I decided to pull out the bear stamp set and use that for my card for this challenge. The Willow and Sapphire colours are used minimally - in the mug and hat plus in the sentiment at the bottom. The patterned paper is from the Jack paper pack. 

Join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the colour palette shown above. Use all and only the colours shown (silver is optional). If you don't have the exact colours shown, use whatever you have that is closest. 
You have until Thursday at 10pm EST to link up your project. 

Products used are all Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated:

Paper: Jack Paper Pack, White Daisy Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Slate Cardstock
Inks: Black, Willow, Sapphire
Stamps: Jack Cardmaking, Sending Smiles
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge (ret.), Silver Shimmer Trim, Silver Sequins (ret.), Jack Cardmaking Thin Cuts, Sewing Machine and Black Thread (not CTMH), Thin Foam Tape

Love those two lumber jack plaids you used for your frames...and of course your stitching...I just cannot bring out my sewing machine for this, plus no room on any surface in my scrapbook room. Fun and adorable card.

Love your Card Alyson! I can just imagine how much the bear is enjoying his coffee. :) I love how you put some much detail into your projects.

Great card, Alyson! I love your use of black stitching and the fringed shimmer trim. Any man would smile when receiving this adorable card.

Love your stitching, but the thing that stood out the most was the silver shimmer trim that the bear apparently scratched. Great textures.

Alyson, your bear looks ready to start his day! I love the stitching and what you did with the shimmer trim!
