Tatty Teddy

Hi all hope you are all well.
This is probably the first of many Tatty Teddy
cards. My daughter is absolutely crazy
about this cute little bear and his blue
nose friends, and has quite a few,
she keeps asking her dad to make a shelf for them all.
  So when we where in our local
craft shop last week and saw the new range
that has just been released, well that was it.
We bought 5 of the stamps, then she spent the next few days stamping and colouring the images in.
(Kept her quiet anyway)

I must say they are really cute so i decided to use
one on my card for the Bearly Mine challenge.
Their theme is Vintage Easel.
So i have used a vintage ted.

The papers i have used are Bearly mine, a mixture
of some freebies, Vintage and summer lace.
I made a patchwork design on the computer and
printed it out.

The flower is made form the flower you get with the
new doily dies from Marianne Creatables.
The dies look a bit pansy shape to me, but when
i layered them up it look more like a Water Lilly.
Used spun sugar distress ink on the flower and then added some stickles and card candy for the centres.

The tad sentiment is also a Marianne creatables die and 
i wrote my own sentiment, 
trying to keep it in the Tatty Teddy style.
I have used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch and a 
bit of lace.
I have discovered my slice again, it's been sat on my shelf 
for a year (or more) gathering dust. I got the tickled pink
version they did and whilst having a play
  with the tickled pink cartridge i found these leaves.
Who new (slap hands).
The great thing is you can make them small or go large.
It's up to you.

Thanks for looking today,
