2 Sisters Challenge ~ Teddy Bear Picnic

The challenge this week at 2 Sisters is to create a card or project with the theme teddy bear picnic. We are being sponsored again this week by two amazing companies. Stamp Fairy and Inky Impressions. The image I used is from Stamp Fairy and is called Thank You 5.

The base of my card is lavender rosebuds patterned paper backed in purple palisades cardstock. I punched a strip of purple palisades using an eyelet border punch (from Martha Stewart Crafts) and added a light blue sheer ribbon across the middle of it. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I cut it out in a circle and backed it first in purple palisades and then again in lily pond cardstock. I added three purple paper roses to the upper left side of the image. I added frosted lace stickles to the edges of each petal on the roses. I also added it to the center of each flower in the image. To the right side of the card I added a bow made out of the same ribbon, a purple gem and white pearl hat pin. On the end of the hat pin is a purple heart gem charm. I also added a butterfly punched out of the lily pond cardstock and added two purple rhinestones to the center. At the bottom of my card I stamped "Get Well Soon" and added green rhinestones to both sides of the sentiment.

Hiya Mary, I saw your card on the 2 Sisters blog and thought it was beautiful. I love the backing paper and the lilac colours are fab. Did you make the pin yourself? It's gorgeous, and looks great with the butterfly. Fab card. Annette xx (your 2 Sisters "teamie", and Incy Wincy DT)
