Logo Challenge


This is the card I made for a challenge issued by Molly from the Paper Dolls Blogger Group. The challenge was to find a logo and use that as inspiration for a card. I spent a lot of time thinking about what to do. I wanted to do Bengals something just because football logos are cool, and the Bengals are my team! But it's very tricky finding a good Bengals orange. So I just kept pondering it. My little girl was talking with me about her stuffed animals and informed me that "Pink Tails" was sick and needed to go to the doctor. She has a name for each stuffed animal, it's very cute. Then she asked me when we're going to go to that place where she can make her own stuffed animal. And it hit me: Build-A-Bear. I found this darling logo and it's what I used for my inspiration. Since I'm still needing baby cards I decided to go with a baby theme. The yellow looks pretty good on the card, but right next to the logo it looks a little washed out. That yellow on the logo is pretty vibrant! And Susan, you'll be happy to know after you sent me that cardstock, I decided having red was indeed a necessity, so I got some red ink and I'll be getting cardstock soon!

Stamps: Inkadinkado Baby Boy, Rubber Stampede Bear, Unity Distressed Dots
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Pure Poppy, Copics
Cardstock: PTI Lemon Tart, PTI Vitage Cream, SU Real Red (thanks Susan!), SU Kraft
Accessories: Offray Ribbon, Random Buttons
