Teddy Bo Tuesday

It's that time again, another Teddy Bo Tuesday and a new Teddy Bo challenge. Congratulations to the top three from last week, your cards are just fabulous ladies, in fact all the entries for our challenges so far have been amazing.
Don't forget to check out the Teddy Bo store for new arrivals, there are some gorgeous new images that you will just have to have!
Now onto the challenge, this week we have a Guest Design Team member Kathy, and she has set the theme for this challenge, Kathy has made a sketch for us to use.

We are being sponsored this week by Crafty Emma's Store and she is offering as the prize the winners choice of 4 x 10m bundles of  Divine Twine. I wish I could enter the challenge myself, what a great prize.

Now I'm not a great lover of sketches, I know some people love them, but I find them a bit constraining, I like to go with the flow when making a card, so I have found this weeks challenge a bit of a struggle and am not really happy with it.

For my card I used the adorable Baby You're a Star image. I coloured Bea in photoshop and paper pieced her clothes with papers from the Sweet Candy paper pack from Clipart fairy, I used papers from the same pack to decorate the card. I used a Marianne creatables die to cut the fancy circle, which is decorated with glamour dust and pearls from stash. The lemon vintage seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl and the ribbon threaded lace is again from stash. The sentiment was made using peelies.

Don't forget to check out the new Teddy Bo and Bea images in the store and we hope you can join us for this week's challenge, it is such a pleasure to visit your blogs and see your beautiful creations.

I am going to enter my card in these challenges

KB Cute Monday - use the colour pink
