Bean Counters

     The Friday challenge over at The Outlawz has changed and is now a "Festive Friday" challenge.  Each week, four silly 'festivities' are chosen and you can use any one of them as the theme for your card.  This week the four things are:  Bean Day, Bird Day, Bubble Bath Day, and Polar Bear Plunge Day.  I chose this fun image by From the Heart Stamps because I could cover two of the four festive days.  :-D

I also used the sketch from The Outlawz.
Of course, I had to modify it for the shape of my image piece.

     I colored with my ProMarkers and added the sentiment.  I die cut it with one of my dies from Spellbinders.  I matted it with CS and rounded the corners with a punch.  Both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the flower is from a new batch of white flowers I got from Santa.  Pretty fast and simple.
