Teddies with Sparkles Monthly Challenges

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all well and enjoying the weekend.
It's time for a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

It's my turn to choose the theme so I picked Teddy Bears.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...

The image is LOTV. It's actually James, but I added the bow to make it Jenny. I've coloured using Copics. 
I've used my Tattered Lace Panorama dies to make this. I just love these.
I've printed the backing papers (well card) using a Tatty Twinkles cd and super smooth card.
I chose just one shape of die to make the apertures, cutting 3 different sizes. 
I used off cuts of the printed card to make the embellishments, using Tattered Lace dies and a punch for the flowers, which I fiinished with an adhesive gem.

I've kept the largest die cut (the striped one) to write on and glue to the back, when I decide who to send it to. This will cover up where the copics show slightly on the reverse of the card.

I hope you'll join us for the challenge. We have a couple of lovely sponsors...
