Fairy Sprinkles with her Teddy

Firstly I want to thank all those lovely people who have been leaving me such lovely comments, I try to return it by visiting yours, but I just wanted to give you an extra thank you as I do so appreciate you calling by and leaving me your comments. I also want to say hello to some of my new followers who have joined my blogspot recently. Secondly I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend, its been so lovely that Ive just been taking things easy and relaxing in the garden, hopefully youve done the same.

Todays card is another of Janets gorgeous new Pink Gem Design stamps, this one is a favourite, as I do collect teddy bears so you can understand why. I have stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my Karisma pencils, with also a little bit of Sakura Glitter Pen, just to give her a bit of extra sparkle. I have then cut her out with one of the label dies from Spellbinders, and then cut another one out of mauve pearlescent card to mount her onto.

The base card is another of my favourite size 8"x 8" white card on top of which I have layered up mauve pearlescent card with a paper from the Pocket full of Poses stack, its not to easy to see as I have put a piece of embossed vellum over the top. The second layer is another piece of mauve pearlescent card with another of the mauve patterns from the same stack, but has been stuck to the base card in a diamond shape.

I have mounted the stamped image in the centre of this mount with the mount at the same angle as the last layer. I have then punched out some flourishes and stuck them to two opposite corners, one with a star gem in and the other a teddy button. For the greeting I have used another of my Just-Rite stamps and cut this out with my smaller label die and have again cut out another in the same pearlescent card and rotated it like the stamped image, then attached it to the card with a bit of foam tape.

The flowers are some of my prima flowers layered up and with a pearl brad and a silver spacer through the centre of both, on the bottom one I have hung two charms, one a fairy and one a teddy bear, a bit frivalous but just thought it did warrant it. Before sticking them to the card I have again punched out some leaves and arranged them underneath the flowers and stuck them to the card with silicone glue. The final touch was the star gems which I have stuck in three of the corners.
