Puddle Jumping Layout

Good morning everyone,

I just wanted to share a layout a did for a few challenges this week. Over at Pile It On Challenge #23 was Summer Showers. Here is a view of the entire layout. I cut all the die cuts and shapes from Everyday Paper Dolls and George.
Here is a closeup of the little "puddle jumping" bear. He is cut from the Cricut only. No Design Studio, No Gypsy, No SVG files or anything like that :-)

Here is a closeup of the clouds. I pop dotted a couple to add dimension.

Here is one more closeup of the bear.
Now for the other challenges this applies to:
Pile It On - #23 Summer Showers
Meljen's Desigsn - Sparkle, Glitter, Bling
Stampavie - Dots
Our Creative Corner - Focus on Corners
