Teddy's Big Birthday

Hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Sunday - ours was very typical, late start followed by a lovely roast beef Sunday lunch and then visiting family.  Didn't fall off the wagon and succumb to any chocolate eggs though :) Good job I got my crafting done on Saturday! Lol.

I made an easel type card this time for a change, although it still has the same 6x6" workspace on the front. Ha! This one was designed with two challenges in mind - 'Stampin' for the Weekend' (Ready Teddy Go!) and Polkadoodles (Big Birthdays).  Here's what I made ...

I love the colour scheme on this one (looks a little bit 'shabby', I think) and I have used some of my new Magnolia Doohickey die cut pieces too. The choice of teddy bear was difficult - I love my 'Fizzy Moon' stamps and there is always 'Tatty Teddy', but I chose an old favourite in my attempt to be a bit different. The main teddy image on the flat part of the easel is stamped three times and decoupaged for added dimension.
