Just Cute Bears Challenge #38 - sketch

I'm sharing my Just Cute Bears DT card with you here today.  For challenge #38 this week we have a lovely sketch by Helen to work with.  To enter and have a chance to win the weekly prize, just create a project, incorporating a teddy in your design and add a direct link to your blog posting of the card on the Just Cute Bears Challenge Blog.

I just love this 'Teddy with Bouquet' by Lili of the Valley, so useful and appropriate for many occasions.

I coloured the image with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers and cut it out with a petite scallops circle nestabilities die.  The filigree layer in the background was cut with the Lotus Shapeabilities by Spellbinder die from white card.  The blue layer (which is actually Almost Amethyst by SU! but looks blue in the piccie!) was embossed with a Cuttlebug roses embossing folder and the ribbon was from my stash.  Background paper is from the Papermania Henbury Lane collection and the sentiment from a set by Hero Arts and cut out using a petite scallop oval nesties die.  I didn't add any flowers, pearls or gems as I felt the paper was too pretty to cover up any more!   The sentiment could be appropriate for many different occasions so a great one to keep in stock.

I do hope you'll submit an entry to the challenge this week, it's so nice to visit all the blogs to check out the entries and see all your projects.
