Bear Hug for a Birthday

 I won this lovely stamp by Wags and Whiskers at Teddy Stampers and decided to make this card which I can entered into several challenges.
I stamped it on white card stock and paper pieced the dress and bow with a dotted pattern which I shaded  with Copics. I colored rest of the stamp with Copics. I stamped and cut the wings in acetate and added sparkle under neath. I do not know if you can see that or not....but it looks good in real life. Following a sketch from Waltzing Mouse, I filled in the corner with paper, added a strip of ribbon and made a flower out of  the dotted paper. Finished with a stick on sentiment.
Waltzing Mouse Sketch: See lower right
Wags & Whiskers: Use acetate, vellum, or tissue.
Teddy Stampers: Birthday Card
Just Cute Bears and Friends: Black and White plus one color.
Basic Grey Challenge: Use something with wings
   Wings on my image and used Olivia Paper
Sentimental Sunday: Theme is Childhood plus a sentiment.
Lollipop Crafts: Do a girlie card.
City Crafter Challenge: Little Children
Copic Creations: Shading your paper pieced pieces.
Bizzy Becs Challenges: Cute and Sweet.

Stamp: Wags &Whiskers "Bear Hug"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Stazon Black (used on acetate for wings)
Copics: C00,03, E00,11,31,33,34,39, R20
Papers: Basic Grey Olivia, GKD PL White and Black, scrap of aqua
Sentiment: Cloud 9 Epoxy Stick on

Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
