Teddy Bear's Picnic

When I was young I learnt to play the song "The Teddy Bear's Picnic", and I thought of that when making this card with a very special young boy in mind.

The image is a free digi from Designed 2 Delight (now From The Heart Stamps) that I downloaded some time ago.  He was coloured with chalks.

I decided to keep the mounting simple so the focus stays on the image, so went for an off set squares design - I added a faux stitched border to both squares.

The dp, although a bright green does not overwhelm the image, but makes for a cheerful card, especially with the contrasting red card base.

  The finishing details were the sentiment and some clear rhinestones.
