More Teddy Bea!

When making the card for the Guest Designer spot mentioned in the previous post I was inspired to make another version of the pop up box featuring Teddy Bea. I have been dying to use this fairy image, she really looks like she is staring up at the stars, which gave me the idea to have some stars floating above her head, and when colouring her in (digitally) I just felt an overwhelming desire to put yellow spots on her boots!!!! this then became the underlying theme for the rest of the card. I decided purple card with yellow spots was needed, but didn't have any in my stash, so made my own (insert proud grin here LOL!), then decided that I also needed ribbon to match (more grinning!), so whipped some up and there you have it. The sentiment circle comes from the Colour Your Own decoupage sheet from Teddy Bo and Co, as does the fairy Bea image. I think she looks super cool with her spotty boots!
