Summery Sugar

I've had the day off today...woo-hoo!...so I spent a little time crafting this afternoon, while watching the Tour de France. I followed the sketch from the Sugar Bowl Challenge (including the optional extra of 'scallops'), using one of the Gorjuss Girl stamps, 'Teddy Bear', which is also perfect for the Teddy Stampers 'Love My Teddy' challenge. I used summery coloured papers from the 'Ooh La La (for Her)' collection by My Mind's Eye, so I'm also going to enter this card into Cute Card Thursday's 'School's Out for Summer'...even though I still have a couple more weeks of teaching to go before it's out for me! :0(
I distressed all of the edges, and added a sentiment from the CCSR set by Papermania, as I'm going to send this card to my partner for this month's Friendship Card Sawp on the Docrafts forum.
