Teddy Bear Congratulations

There is a very special wee miss being expected in our (extended) family shortly. As there is a holiday break occurring in the DT work for McMahon Five, I thought I would get a head start on some other cards.

I took my initial inspiration from the Simply Less is More Blogspot challenge for the week, which is to have a one layer card and 'something with legs'...

This teddy bear stamp is from Kiwistamping, who are responsible for my  papercraft addiction as they introduced me to stamping....

I firstly embossed the dots using a border folder by cuttlebug, then 
 stamped the teddy in graphite black and embossed him with clear detail ep, and coloured him with chalks.

The sentiment (from Layers of Color) was stamped and gold embossed, and the card finished off with a ribbon and pink rhinestone 'tummy button'.  

This was a quick card, and a real joy to make.  I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - May your day be blessed.
