MFP Sneak Peek

I really love this big ol' bear and he makes awesome, masculine cards... don't you think? Of course, it can be used for any occasion you prefer. My card is made to give a sneak peek of one of the sets   being released next Tuesday at Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. It is called North American Woods. The set has some great images and sentiments. The blog hop starts next Tuesday and you'll be seeing the complete release. Hope you'll join us.

I colored, cut out, and popped my image. Then, I sponged around the image for a sunny look. I think he is coming out early morning looking for food. That's my take on it, anyway. :-)

I want to enter my card into these challenges:
 Hotshot Craft blog challenge #4 this week which is One For the Boys-any project male related
