Birthday Teddy

Good morning - doesn't Monday seem to come around quickly?! Hope everyone had a good weekend, whatever you were doing. We didn't do anything exciting, but a nice weekend all the same - a quiet evening for my hubby and I on Friday, family here on Saturday, gardening yesterday (before the rain arrived - again!). Just wanted to share a card I made this week for a friend's daughter who will soon be 10 years old - and it seemed a perfect image for her!

This is a LOTV stamp called 'Patchwork Present' and is such a sweet image that could be used for different occasions. I've coloured it with promarkers and added a bit of ultrafine glitter for extra bling!
The backing papers are Nitwit papers and the pearlised paper and card is from CraftersCompanion.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid. I didn't have a pale blue flower to match, so used one of their 30mm wild rose in ivory and spritzed it with mica powders mixed with a little water, so it has a slight sheen to it as well. I think it works ok.  The pearly pins are from my stash - I think they were freebie gifts with a cross-stitching magazine!

Just for a change, I made this as a 6" square gatefold card with a ribbon tie at the side - the ribbon is from Joanna Sheen. The sentiment is from my current favourite selection of sentiment stamps from Whimsy.
Hope you like the effect - and hope my friend's daughter likes the card! 
Oh well, I'm off to the dentist this morning :( 
Does anyone enjoy going to the dentist? And I feel guilty because he's such a nice dentist - but I still don't like going lol!
Back soon, Kim x
