Teddy Bo Tuesday and New challenge

Welcome to another Teddy Bo Tuesday, it's a beautiful sunny day here, has the summer finally arrived, we can only hope.
Today is the start of a new challenge over on the Teddy Bo challenge blog and Team B are in the hot seat this week for our
Alter Something
challenge, go and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the girls, you will be amazed at what they have come up with.

As it's not my team's challenge I have made a card, but thought the picture was perfect for a frame too, so that's what I have done. Please forgive the rubbish photos, my hubby usually takes them, but he was at work so I have had to do them myself, the card and frame look so much better in real life than they do here.

I have used one of this weeks new releases, the bears are coloured in Photoshop as usual, but I made the picture up in Photoshop too, using a background paper from Raspberry Road's Squeaky Clean paper set, and some wordart and bits and pieces from some of my digital scrapbooking kits, (I think they come from various kits by Tina Chambers). The sentiment too is from Tina Chambers but I re-did it and changed the words slightly to suit my purpose.
The card uses papers from Raspberry Road's Beach Bliss, flowers from Creative Treasures, seam binding from Ribbon Girl and gems from stash.
Once I had finished the card I thought the picture would be perfect in a frame, so printed it out again onto canvas photo paper, found a frame to fit it and added some more flowers, seam binding and gems to the frame to dilly it up a little. To be honest flowers are not my forte, I love them on everyone else's cards, but I am never happy with them when I use them myself.

As it's Teddy Bo Tuesday that can only mean one thing, new releases in store, here is a quick peek, head to the store for a better look.

Don't forget to alter something for our challenge this week, we love hopping around your blogs and seeing what fabulous creations you all come up with.

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges;
Crazy Challenge - Ribbons
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge - Anything goes using a digi
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Paper Playtime - summer theme using digital or stamped images or sentiments
