Love My Teddy Bears

Decided to make this card for a challenge that ends in a couple hours so must hurry to do this post. I received this image from Just Cute Bears Challenge and just had to use it for their challenge this week.
Colored the image with pencils and OMS and distressed the edges with distress ink and think I overdid it a bit. Oops! Was in a hurry! Also added this distress ink to the background paper which already had some distressing in the pattern. The bear image is layered by using image twice and cutting out the back, leg and arm and then adding layers with pop up dots. Hope you can see it in photo.
Finished with the printed ribbon and flower with brad.
Challenges:
Just Cute Bears Challenge:  This week's challenge is Decoupage.
Either layer up a stamped image or use a decoupage kit.
Just remember the image needs to be of a cute bear.
Sweet Sunday Sketch: Sketch shown on lower right.
Penny Black at Allsorts: Use A Burst of Summer Colour with a Penny Black image.


Image: Penny Black "Dream a Dream"
Paper: Basic Grey Pattern from Cappella Paper Pack
           Ivory CS from stash
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea dye
Flower colored with Memento Angel pink
Ribbon: MS Assortment
Flower from Prize Box from JCBC
