Bear Blanks Baby

This is the card to go with the Nappy Cake I showed you last week for my friend's new baby (a little girl named Megan Alice). I used the same colours as the nappy cake...gender neutral...originally picked because I didn't know if the baby was going to be a boy or a girl...but my friend dislikes pink as much as I do, so I don't think she'll mind! The cute wee bears are the 'Bear Blanks' by Penny Black...I coloured them using watercolour pencils, then added the lettering to their boards. I used my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' for the embossing, added a big satin faux-bow (held in place with a diamonte brad from Craft Obsessions) to match the nappy cake...and a few pieces of Craftwork Cards 'Card Candi'.

Just love this card Helen.
Are there the five bears and you could stamp as many as you want for the name length, they are just fab.
love the swiss dot folder, always looks stunning.
I am always making baby cards for my customers so this stamp would be lovely.
