Teddy Bears On Parade

This week at Card Crafter's Circle, our theme is "Teddy Bears on Parade."
Our sponsor is STAMP ART DESIGN BY KATHRYNE! These images are sure to delight you! Kathryne creates images covering so many themes, and they are so very cute too! You can find SADK designs here in the Whimsy Shop. Our random prize winner will receive a selection of 4 images, of their choice - what a wonderful treat.

I am running behind this week, so am tardy getting my little card posted and my blog post written up, so without further ado, let me present my card (smile). I used Kathryne's  Bonnet Bear with Large Flower. Isn't she a cutie? If you send Easter cards, this little darling would be "perfect" wearing her Easter bonnet with the large flower. I printed my image onto X-Press It brand card and colored the bear, her hat and her "slip" with Copic markers. I then decided to paper piece her dress, so printed a second image onto the blue dotty paper, cut the dress only and glued it over my printed image. I did use a Toner gray 1 pen to emphasize the shadows in the folds of her skirt, and a red pen to color in the little heart.  I then fussy cut the entire image.

My card base is white card with a panel of stripy DP (My Mind's Eye). I've created a panel of blue card, punching both sides with a Martha Stewart punch. I added a multi-colored ribbon and bow over the blue and a white paper doily (Wilton). I used foam dots to adhere the little teddy so that she is standing out against the doily and not flush. Lastly, I added my sentiment (which I inked around) and three white pearls.

We do hope you will play along with us this week in the challenge at Card Crafter's Circle. A reminder be eligible for prizes and badges, your entry must follow our rules, and please post the DIRECT link to your actual card entry, not your blog.
