"Belle" of the Valentine Ball

 Welcome! If you have visited here before, you know that I love Teddy Bears and making cards with them. I am sharing a new stamp "Belle" which I won from Repeat Impressions. Doesn't she look like one of my fave bears "Beddy" shown in the photo below? I just had to have the stamp when I saw it. I made this Valentine for the Sketch Challenge at Repeat Impressions. I stamped "Belle" and colored her with Copics and then stamped her again on Red Texture CS to paper piece her hat and coat. Also stamped, colored and cut  the flower to pop on to her hat. Added some glossy accents to the flowers and her heart buttons. The card pretty much speaks on it own.

Challenges:
What If? Wedneday: Sketch Challenge J112 (See below)
Our Creative Corner:  Use some kind of paper piecing on your card . In addition NO ribbon and only one embellishment is allowed. Used tear pearls and paper piecing. The stripe under the sentiment is paper not ribbon.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Create a card or project that has at least two different textures on it. Have  textures of embossing , pearls, glossy accents, and texture card stock.
Let's Ink It Up: Anything Goes...only 2 entries allowed. This is my second.
