I love my teddy bears and love to make cards with bear stamps. This card is an old stamp from Hero Arts "Bear with Sunflower". She is all ready for summer in her sundress and loves sunflowers. I colored her with pencils and OMS and added some accents to her button headband and the frame. Used a glitter printed paper and a solid cs dry embossed as mats but does not show too good in photo. Used a gingham check cs for base card. Added lace and buttons for some bling.
