"Try It Different" Tuesday: Benton's Bouquet

Last week, I was doing a bit of blog catch-up reading, and I spotted this adorable card created by our friend Tina Covington:

I love her "outside the box" layout, with the trimmed bouquet extending past the circle base. Tina also made other cards featuring the Benton the Bear character (drawn by artist Darby New), which you might be interested in viewing here.

The ones shown in this post are from 11080MC Delivery Benton Clear Set (or 8741H Benton's Bouquet, along with 0211D Love Bunch or 8723G Entire Bouquet, in the wood mounted versions):

Take a look at this sweet card from the very talented Sue Nelson (who has probably made literally thousands of projects and continues to inspire others with her creations):

And check out this Double Dutch Fold card by Carol of Double C Creations, who teaches classes at The Embellished Scrapbook Boutique in Sandusky, OH:

Finally, a basic version of Benton by yours truly:

Nothing too fancy, but I sure had fun applying those self-adhesive mini crystals to his bouquet.

Hope you have a "beary nice" day, Inky friends!
