DT Card for Teddy Stampers-Anything Goes


I am really happy today, why? Because it is Friday and a really good childhood friend of mine is getting married tomorrow, I am really looking forward to her big day and celebrating with her. Unfortunately the wedding is in my home city and the hubby is working so he can't make it :( but my whole family (sisters, parents, niece) have been invited so I am sure we will have lots of fun.

So on to the card, I think this turned out beautifully. The challenge today at Teddy Stampers is-Anything Goes, but obviously you must use a Teddy image. We are being sponsored by Ellephantastic, so some of the DT were given Ellephantastic images to use, I was one of them and I chose the cute Tattie Bear with Heart, isn't he just adorable?

The fancy shot

This card took some time to put together, I just couldn't decide on the final design lol. I am trying to use lots of flowers on my cards, I just love the romance they add to the overall design, I am a softy at heart lol. So off to Wild Orchid it will be after payday lol. After much messing around with the flowers, the colouring and the layout this is what I came up with lol. Typically I would have used red backing card but to be different I tried a silvery grey card, I think this worked. The punch is Martha Stewart. the image was coloured using Promarkers. I added some silver stamped flourishes to the edges of the image to make it blend into the overall design. The flowers are Wild Orchid and Prima. The DP is DCWV-Spring Stack and the ribbon is from stash.

Now it's your turn, come and show us your teddies, remember the challenge is Anything Goes so should be nice and easy, especially with Valentines day around the corner, cute teddies are the way to go.

See you all again soon x
