Teddy Bear

...this is another of the cards I made at last weekend's retreat...this time using the sketch from the Sugar Bowl Challenge. The image is 'Teddy Bear'...and it's been watercoloured to match the gorgeous '29th Street Market' papers by My Mind's Eye...see I told you you'd be seeing more of those! ;0) I made my flowers using Nesties...distressed the edges, the scrunched them up, sanded over the ridges and attached them with Papermania pearl brads. I used the Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder on the blue paper, added a few adhesive pearls, and stamped a couple of Whiff of Joy swirls in the corner.
