A Teddy Bear and Flowers

Welcome

I had a ball in the studio this afternoon and made this card ready for a baby shower tomorrow. I sort of got carried away with the flowers - something you don't often see a great proliferation of on my cards - even DH commented on the abundance of flowers.  I felt I could use them as I don't have to post this card :-). I also made a swing card using the tutorial here on Splitcoast Stampers



The image is a Kiwi Stamping one - I stamped it in Walnut Stain DI then watercoloured it, cut it using a S/B circle die, and sponged it with Spun Sugar DI before removing the die.


The inside sentiment is by Stampendous, stamped using 
 Memento Iridescent Coral ink. 


The corners were decorated with a range of layered flowers - the leaves had long stems, so I twisted them around a tooth pink and used them as further accents.


The centre flower here is  Prima Hibiscus, and the smaller fabric one I think is also a Prima one.  I added the rhinestones to match the one in the bears belly button.


This final detail were the wee wooden butterflies bought this week at a local $2 Shop - I added the bow of gold thread before adhering them with glue dots.


I am very happy with this card :-)
