Have a Beary Sweet Summer! -Paper Playtime Summer Challenge #51 w/Bugaboo Stamps! -DT Card!

Okay, onto the second post for today and a little more inspiration to share with you all! As I said earlier I was fortunate to be able to play with 2 of our sponsors images this week for "Paper Playtime" and our theme is Summer! So for my second card I used the cutest little bear stamp from "Bugaboo Stamps" that's just dripping with juicy summer bliss! He is called "Summer Butterfly Bear -Watermelon" and can be found in the shop HERE!

I of course had to sparkle up his wings with Stickles and I also added some some glossy accents to the watermelon seeds to add a little more juicyness! Looks like he definitely doesn't want to share his!

I created the sentiment especially for this adorable image! And I just love to use buttons every chance I get!

The inside...

STAMPS: Bugaboo Stamps "Summer Butterfly Bear -Watermelon" digi stamp and sentiment is my own.
