Boo Boo Bear

My Nan fell and cracked her hip a few days ago, so I made her a card to cheer her up whilst she's in hospital recovering. The image is 'Boo Boo Bear' by Whipper Snapper, and is coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Bloom' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The flowers are from (the long since gone) Poppicrafts, and are held in place using a BasicGrey brad. The sentiment is from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual, and the pearls are from Hobbycraft.
