Teddy with Love and a Flower

I have another bear card today made again with a stamp from Lili of the Valley called "Teddy with Flowers". I stamped Teddy, colored him with copics, and added glitter to the flower, butterflies and stamp on envelope. Following a sketch from LOTV, I layered plaid, polka dot., and stripe papers on a red base card and red mats. Stamped circles with sentiments and also stamped a sentiment on the envelope. I trimmed around the top of flower and upper butterfly so that it extended above the mat. Finished by adding glitter to the polka dots and adding a ribbon with green rhinestones. It is hard to see the glitter but it is there.
Challenges:
Joan's Gardens: Make a card with Paper- plaid, polka dots and stripes, Pearls or Rhinestones, Circles and Sentiment for any occasion. Think I have it all covered.
Lili of the Valley: Use the sketch by Bev shown to the right. Love her sketches.
Fluttter by Wednesday: Use sparkle and shimmer with your butterfly, fairy or angel. Do hope you can see my sparkle and shine.
Teddy Stampers: Create your own BEAR acrostic and base your card on it. My bear acrostic: B is for butterflies, E is for Envelope, A is for animal (Bear) and R is for Ribbon.
The Creative Cottage: Use some sparkle, gems, bling of any kind on your projects.
Basic Grey Challenges: Use sparkle and bling plus product from Basic Grey.

Just ran across your blog over at Charisma Cardz - spending time snooping around. Your cards are stunning.

This is the 'beary' best combination of colors and 'beary' best use of plaid I've seen in a long time!

SWEET!
