Toby's Teddy

We recently had a very special addition to the extended family, and this is the card I am sending his parents.

I started with the white layer and cut three rows of pattern using a S/B edgeability die, off setting the pattern on each row.

The sentiment was clear embossed after stamping with Broken Chins Distress Ink, which I also used to sponge the edges of the white panel.

I then stamped this cute bear from Kiwistamping in espresso ink, coloured him with chalks, fussy cut him and  added the blue rhinestone for his belly button.

I mounted him onto the white layer with foam dots near the bottom of the die cuts, added the wee bow and mounted the whole over the blue base card.

I am linking this to:
