Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Easel Cards

This week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has been set by Renate, and she has chosen:

'Easel Cards'

I made my card to give to my Nan for Grandparent's Day, which is tomorrow here in the UK. The image is one of the adorable Lili of the Valley bears, 'Teddy with Bouquet'. I coloured him with watercolour pencils to match the bright colours of the 'Ooh La La (for Her)' papers by My Mind's Eye. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching, and some Stickles glitter glue (available here at the Secret Crafter) to the flowers on the image. On the bottom part of the card, I used a similar layout, adding a sentiment printed on my computer, and then cut out using my oval Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter).

Here's a view from the front:

I'm also entering this card into the this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge, which has a fab sketch to follow.
