Teddy's Summer Flowers

     A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to be a Guest Designer for Morgan's ArtWorld and I jumped at the chance.  The challenge theme this time is "Beachy or Summery." This darling little teddy bear (Teddy 11), working in his potting shed, looked so perfect for a summer card.  Isn't he sweet?  Don't you wish you had such gorgeous blooms in your summer garden?


     I colored the image with my ProMarkers, then die cut it with one of my plain rectangle dies from Spellbinders.  I matted it first with white CS (with the sentiment on it), then with dark brown CS and layered those onto a green card base.  The brown lace was in my stash and it probably came from Joann Crafts or maybe Beverly's.  It's not nearly as dark as it looks in the photo; in fact, much closer to the brown CS color.

Hey, NanaConnie. This is such a cute image. I love the teddy bear surrounded by her flowers and her little cubs peeking in the window watching her as she tends to the plants. I thought this was very feminine. The bear has a bow at her neck and is surrounded by pretty pink flowers. Lovely card. Thank you for joining us at Come And Get It challenge. Bunny DT
