Might need shades!!

WARNING THIS IS QUITE A BRIGHT CARD!!

Hello again! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!!
I think the bear on this card is certainly enjoying himself:


It's my design team card for Lexi's Creations this fortnight, where the theme is 'At the beach'. Actually, this image was originally a Christmas release, called 'Can I go again - Paulo Bear' and the little bear is supposed to be buried in snow. When I was deciding which image to use something struck me about this looking like a bear buried in sand, perhaps it was the paws sticking out! The backing paper is by Basic Grey - Isabelle from the Oh baby girl collection. I had to really push myself to cut into it !!. The die cuts are by Jolees and have been in my stash for the last 5 years at least!! About time I used things instead of collecting them methinks!!

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to join us at Lexi's !
