Bear & Butterflies

My lovely friend Pauline sent me some adorable Lili of the Valley images last week...and I couldn't resist having a little play with a couple at the weekend. The one I've used on this card is called 'Bear & Butterflies'...I coloured it with watercolour pencils, and added glitter to the butterflies, and some gloss to his glasses...although it doesn't show up too well in the photo. I followed the sketch from Sketch & Stash...and as well as the new image...I was brave and cut into some new papers that I bought whist visiting my parents over Easter...they're from the 'Penny Lane' stack by My Mind's Eye. I also used my new EK Success border punch, and the ribbon, flowers and brads are all from Poppicrafts.

I'm also entering this card into some other challenges:
