Just Cute Bears - Photo Inspiration

This week on the Just Cute Bears Challenge, we have a photo inspiration challenge for you:


Now, when I first saw this photo I was a little bit scared...but then I remembered some fabby papers in the 'Penny Lane' glitter stack by My Mind's Eye, that looked just like the 'eyes' on the peacock's feathers...perfect! The image is 'Teddy with Bouquet' by Lili of the Valley, which I coloured using water colour pencils, and added some sparkle to the flowers with a Sakura Stardust pen. The flowers are by Prima, and the jewelled brads are from Craft Obsessions.


I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiratio, check out the fabulous samples by my lovely DT buddies on the Just Cute Bears Challenge.

I have candy on offer at the moment...and if you haven't already entered, you can find all of the details on this post.
