Rainbows, Kermit, Oz and .......Bears?!?!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! It's nice to have some visual inspiration! You can choose to use the colors, the theme of the photo, or go off on a tangent because of some emotion a photo touches within your soul....however this picture inspires you, we want to see it in your project!

This week's theme is a
Photo Inspiration
(See picture toward the bottom of my post)

I'm sure you're wondering what's up with my post title, so I'll explain: obviously, the rainbow comment stems from the inspiration photo this week, and the bear comment comes from my chosen image for my card. Now.....the Kermit comment...well, the entire time (and into the rest of my day!) I was working on this card, I had the Kermit song and the Wizard of Oz favorite, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", stuck in my head. lol! Catchy little tunes, aren't they?!  So, there you have it - Kermit and Oz really had absolutely nothing to do with the card, or the Bugaboo was all about what was in my head! Ack! Haha!
Now on to the real reason you are here ( I hope! lol! ).

This week I colored with my pencils, and I did use my Gamsol with them for blending.
My sentiment I had typed in PhotoShop, and it is layered on an eK SUccess Label Punch. The main image and scalloped layer was cut with my Spellbinders.
The pretty ribbon was a recent find at AC Moore. My paper was a sale item from Michaels, so it is by Recollections. The three large brads are something I have had in my stash "forever".

Here is the photo to use for your inspiration, too! We'd love for you to play along with us!

Now that you've seen how this pic inspired me, let's see what it did to inspire you! Be sure to head over to Catch the Bug to add your creation to the Mr. Linky to play along with our challenge. :0)
