Teddy Bo Tuesday and new challenge

It's the start of another challenge on the Teddy Bo Challenge Blog this week and the theme this time around is
DUCK EGG BLUE AND BROWN
Your card or project must contain these colours and of course a Teddy Bo and Co image, and this week the prize will be some Teddy Bo and Co digi's. I hope that you can join us, as myself and the rest of the design team always look forward to seeing your fabulous creations.

Don't forget to go over to the Teddy Bo store and check out all the fantastic new images.

This week I have used Shopping Daze to make a 21st birthday card for my friends daughter, Bea was coloured in photoshop and her boots, dress and bags paper pieced. All papers used are from Clipart Fairy's Dollie Mixtures papers 1 and the book-a-easel pages are from Dollie Mixtures Mega book-a-easel pages, ribbon and pearls are from stash, and there is a generous sprinkling of glamour dust too.

I can't get the photos to show the dimensional look of the book-a-easel, so take my word for it that it looks much better in real life, wish the same could be said for me LOL!

This is the card flat-ish and ready for posting.

I made a little pop-up of the bags to hold the easel card open. I'm really proud of these bags as I drew them myself, and racked my brains to think of appropriate store names.

Pop on over the the Teddy Bo Challenge Blog and check out the wonderful creations from the rest of my teamies.
