Finally Back .... Tatty Teddy

Hello all and it's sooo good to be finally back with a finished card .... I've been colouring lots but just can't seem to get it all together into a finished card ... Until now that is lol ...

So, I was one of the local Scrapbook Shops, Scrap Needs, last week and the lady told me about a magazine called (docrafts) Creativity that was offering a freebie stamp and small embossing folder with it's purchase and of course me being me I couldn't resist!!  Am I sooo glad that I got it .... this little bear called "Tatty Teddy" is absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't wait to colour him in.  I haven't coloured animals as yet and thought he might be a good place to start because there's not really much you can do except add some highlights and shadowing ..... So I stamped him up in pink, brown and green and I was inspired by the pink image to do a girly girl card and this was the end result.

I've left the card relatively simple because he's so dainty and pink .... I had an easel card that I had made and never used and I've coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and solvent and then added some flowers from Wild Orchid and a few other bits and pieces.

Anyway, I hope you like my lateset effort and I hope that I manage to get a few more cards done and posted ...
