Just Plain Happy

I spent most of the wekend treated myself to a little crafting time last night as a reward! I hadn't used this adorable teddy in a while so I thought I'd ink him up...he's 'Dream a Dream' by Penny Black...doesn't he look content? I used several Cuttlebug folders for the embossing...'Swiss Dots', 'Birds & Swirls', 'Flower Fantasy' and one from the 'Just My Type' border set. The sentiment is from a set by Doodlebug, the flowers were cut using my Tattered Florals die, and I popped pieces of white Card Candi in their centres.

Challenges for this card:
I have candy on offer at the moment...if you haven't already entered, you can find it on this post.
