Vintage Teddy with favourite things

Hi everyone,

I'm so pleased to be crafting again and just as I got into it, I am going be away from home for work again till Monday so no more cards for me till Monday guys :( I'm really sad... So today I wanted to make a special card and not a Christmas themed one, my poor non Christmas stamps have been picking up dust so I had to get this one out. I don't normally work with vintage browns but I love cards that use a lot of brown. So I tried this one, what do you think? I really do like this, it came out just right:

And yes I had some fun taking the pics too lol

I love the way the colouring turned out too. I am thinking a lot more before I plonk colour onto my images. I always added shading but sometimes it didn't flow throughout the image as it should, so I need to get this right now-not that anyone has noticed or if they have they've been too polite to say lol xx

So this card is trying to express all things I love, obviously pink has to be number 1 however I tried to keep it to a minimum as the 2nd thing was to try something new and challenge myself, this for me was to try a different colour and brown it was!!! Number 3 CAKE lol, now who doesn't like cake hey. I love decorating cakes, when I lived at home we always baked at the weekends but seeing as there was 5 of us and lots of family and friends popping over throughout the weekend you couldn't pig out on your creations which was great. Seeing as there is only me and the hubby at home baking is out of the question otherwise we would just pig out completely lol. Infact I nearly asked the hubby for a cake decorating kit for Christmas but I think that could get dangerous and we would be piling on the pounds in no time so for now I will refrain. Don't worry there is plenty of crafting goodies I have asked for lol.

Sorry this post has been me waffling on as usual. So to the ingredients: DP is Dovecraft, Image Forever Friends-coloured using Promarkers, little brown chalk to distress the edges, bit of glitter, a foam sticky sentiment and gorgeous blue satin ribbon.
