Bear of Many Challenges

Papertake Weekly is celebrating their 3rd birthday with special prizes and a special challenge. This week’s challenge is to pick your favourite challenge from the last 3 years. I decided to pick Animal Magic a challenge from just a few weeks ago... to use an animal of some sort in your work.  I chose to use a teddy bear image because they are the most magical of all animals, don't you think?  The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and I colored him using copics in Autumn colors. I used a layout from The Pixie Cottage. Added some embossing to the mat of Basic Grey and added sparkle (hard to see in photo) to the bouquet with glitter pens. Hand drew some flowers that I cut out, colored, sparkled, and attached with glue dots. Scalloped circle is a punch out from SU and was stamped with sentiment.

Papertake Weekly: Animal Magic
Lily of the Valley: Autumn colors plus a LOTV image.
The Pixie Cottage: Sketch #39 shown above plus embossing. Embossed a mat.
Teddy Stampers: Fall Colors

Ink: Memento Potter's Clay
Papers: Basic Grey Max and Whiskers Patterned Paper ( embossed mat), Green and Plaid from stash
Cuttlebug EF Herringbone
Nesties Circle
Sakura Gelly Roll in Clear Star, Jelli-Ink Pens Orange and Gold

I do wish the sparkle showed better but it does sparkle in real life.
I plan to give this card to my husband on our anniversary.
